Liberals...always looking out for the elites over the common man.

Another misleading headline. How surprising 🙄. They are running 1 engine on this mystery fuel and the other on jet A. Any hiccups, and they'll just turn on the crossfeed valve.

I wonder how the exhaust from this new fuel is going to interact with our atmosphere. how many years of study has happened. then what happens to the trees, water sources and soil when this residue falls to the ground? A point left hanging from this article claims that 500 gallons of this fuel in one engine and 500 gallons of traditional fuel in another somehow demonstrates "proof" of something. what are the metrics? are we just to take what's written as gospel?
