Driving vehicles, traveling in airplanes, and using other forms of fuel-burning equipment damages the atmosphere. We enjoy walking our dog to the local park, but we must choose to walk a longer route in order to avoid the major road that would otherwise be our choice. While walking along the main road we smell the exhaust from the passing vehicles instead of smelling the flowers, cut grass and enjoying the view. The vehicles we drive affect the atmosphere: be it the noise, exhaust, or even the enjoyment of traveling with friends and family. Thus, I chose a bio-diesel station as my choice due to the company’s desire to offer an alternative to fossil fuels. When we fuel up our diesel with 99% bio-diesel we are amazed by how little the exhaust stinks.

We have a VW Jetta that runs on bio-diesel- we often fuel up at this station. This station gets most of its power from the SOLAR PANELS that are over the fueling pumps. The store has a sod roof in which plants are growing and thriving. The entire building is painted in low and zero vox paints as well. The entire environmental impact of the business itself is extremely low.

By powering the business with solar panels, using environmentally safe paints and other building supplies, this business helps our atmosphere in many ways. By offering bio-fuels they also offer an alternative to atmosphere-polluting fossil fuels in multiple ways. The 99% bio diesel works as a cleaning agent for the engine, it burns more effectively, there is less residue and particulate mass after it burns, and it is produced from plant life and some oil waste. The fuel can be produced from some used French fry oil and other similar oils, as long as they are not broken down too much by over use as a frying agent.

We enjoy the atmosphere inside the fueling station: it offers wonderful organic coffee, pastries, and other organic foods. We also appreciate their approach to improving the atmosphere through their own new building as well as products offered at the station.

Equipment

Shot with a Nikon D70 with 10.5 lens, used PT GUI, Photoshop and Cubic Converter to create final panoramic image. This was all completed on a G-4 iBook.

This ended up being a "one shot" deal in that I only had one workable day to take pictures and shot this after work on my way home. I see many errors in the picture, but it was better than not participating this time!
