I flipped over that last night but my son would not
let me stop for long. Looked pretty nutty what ever
they were trying to do. I am sure that is the same MB
Diesel they used for the veggie fuel test. They are
pretty "thrifty" guys.
I have seen them do some pretty neat stuff for sure.
I will have to catch that one another time.
