“Concerned,” after receiving an email forward, writes:

“Gosh, Mr. Answer Man, how can I make sure that my car isn’t being fueled by crude oil bought from the Enemies of Our Country, like all those horrible Middle Eastern places, or that nutcase from Venezuela?”

Dear Concerned:

Buy a Nissan Leaf or a Tesla Roadster; they use no gas at all. Otherwise, you haven’t a chance.

    You could get a CNG car. Aubrey McClendon is a bastard, but nowhere near on par with Qaddafi, Mubarak, Chavez, or the Sauds.

    Or you could convert a diesel to run on vegetable oil.
