BioWillie: Family Farmers Growing Fuel for America and the World

A couple of months ago, Willie Nelson set out on a new endeavor to help family farmers and the environment. Nelson and three partners formed Willie Nelson’s Biodiesel, a company that will market Biodiesel fuel to truck stops. Nelson’s brand of Biodiesel, named BioWillie, is produced from vegetable oils, primarily soybeans, and may be burned without modification to diesel engines.

In an interview with the AP News last week, Nelson said, “There is really no need going around starting wars over oil. We have it here at home. We have the necessary product, the farmers can grow it.”
