Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865716129, Paperback)

"There is a lot of information out there about the pros and cons of biofuels - more cons than pros recently. but still, nothing seems to beat Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO). It's cheap, carbon-neutral, uses a waste product and does not depend upon centralized corporate infrastructure. And now there is a definitive guide to fueling your diesel engine with this alternative fuel. SVO-Powering Your Vehicle with Straight Vegetable Oil cuts through the masses of often contradictory, erroneous and confusing information on the subject and provides a practical guide. It also, importantly and uniquely, explains what is necessary to convert a diesel engine and how to do it properly. there are facts, figures, charts, grpahs, diagrams, and lots of technical detail but, with all its detail, the book is still very accessible. Gregg knows his stuff; he is a former researcher with Frybrid, a leading developer of veggie oil conversion systems, and has worked as a designer, fabricator and installer of SVO conversion systems." - Natural Life Magazine

"Mia Montrose, archaeological linguist, has discovered that the Black Madonna is a code used by secret societies throughout time for the lost key to an ancient power source: the Sphere of Amenti. Kali, inter-dimensional Queen of the Anunnaki -now fully merged with the youngest Dragon Queen, Tamar Devere - has less than a year to rehabilitate her Fallen kindred who desire inter-galactic domination. Ashlee Granville-Devere, and the Dragon Queens must pool their talents to open the twelve Stations of the Signet Grid and unlock the Halls of Amenti lest the Fallen succeed in using time-travel technologies to destroy humanity. From the ancient past to the distant future, from Montsg ur to the way-stations of the universe, from the Underworld of the Kali Rift to the Otherworld of the Ranna Time Flow - the inter-time war must be won for the sake of the future."--Provided by publisher.… (more)
