Coal to Fuel

Read an article somewhere that the Air Force is setting aside land and providing a grant for a comany to start producing fuel oil from coal. Anyone else heard of this ? I think it's a good idea other than it releases CO2 in the conversion process haha.

Soon to add 4" turbo back, Guages, and SCT with some tunes, and of course I would bet new headgaskets and studs when the truck tells me it needs them.

You will hear called coal gasification most often. Like any other fossil fuel, it releases CO2 into the atmosphere that was stored in the ground for millions of years.
