Fill her up with gulf spill oil?
Chemical dispersant used in the gulf are deadly, do we want to eat and breath it?
substances that bioconcentrate tend to move from water into fish, where they can do damage to the fish itself, as well as be passed on to predator fish - and on up the food chain, to human eaters
Fill her up with spill oil? When British Petroleum sells the crude from the leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico, the oil could end up at gas stations.
Since the collected oil contains a high concentration of methanol, BP expects that each barrel will sell at a lower price than regular crude. Supposedly Oil taken from the well will be indistinguishable from other oil on the market, Louisiana State University professor Julius Langlinais told the AP. They don't say that is until you analyze it and find out breathing the fumes will kill you!
I understand people who are working on the clean up or still hitting the beach are burning their feet on this oil because of the poisonous caustic tarry goo created by mixing the the deadly dispersant with the oil. We know we are killing coral and all sea life not to speak of plankton the very basic building block all sea life then sea birds then human life depends on.
Do you think it wise to put this caustic mess in our gas tanks? You can not convince me it would be the same as regular gas even if they said they tested it. Think what we'd be breathing and adding to the air.
I understand BP will be setting some aside to help with the environment recovery but the hell with that. If we are forced to breath that, 100% of the tainted profits should go to environmental causes to minimize the growing ecological disaster and the profits should go through the Government not BP.
