Biodiesel has VERY high life cycle energy effeciency
I have seen this before, but now have the source. Biodiesel has a very favorable Energy Yield; that is, the amount of energy gained versus the amount of energy required to produce a gallon of biodiesel. This is one reason that interest in biodiesel has been so strong.
