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.
