E-M:/ Biodiesel and Fuel Efficiency Seminar



Oxford, MI - On Saturday, February 10, from 1- 4 pm, Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center is hosting a seminar: BIODIESEL AND OTHER FUEL EFFICIENT OPTIONS, with Jim Leidel.
 
Come learn how to make your own clean and renewable diesel fuel substitute for 50 cents per gallon from waste restaurant oil.  If you don't drive a diesel car or truck, come learn how to save 10 to 40% on any vehicle's fuel bill.  In his 2006 State of the Union address, President Bush put forward the lofty goal to reduce our Middle East oil imports by 75%, in the next 20 years. Ambitious? With some effort and political will power, we can do 100% in less than five years.  Come and learn how simple change can be, and what you can do to get started.

Jim Leidel has been the energy manager for Oakland University for the past 5 years. He is a mechanical engineer with 16 years experience with energy management and building control systems. Visit www.ouenergy.com  to learn about the sustainable energy projects Jim is involved with at OU.
 
The seminar will include a free Energy Tour of Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center, a Michigan Energy Demonstration Center.
