Murphy2000 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I don't think freighters or bigs ships use normal diesel fuel.. They run on oil but its some kind of thick tar like substance. (from my understanding)

Most ships run on #1 or #2 Bunker oil. The U.S. NAVY is just starting to use B-20, You can read about it here: http://www.renewableenergyaccess.com...story?id=24024There is more info out there, just Google Biodiesel/US Navy.
