The story exposes the headline as a lie:

Quote:
German car manufacturer Audi has reportedly invented a carbon-neutral diesel fuel, made solely from water, carbon dioxide and renewable energy sources.
BFD. Cooking grease is renewable and has been fueling diesels forever.

The story headline was written by someone who (it's safe to assume) didn't read the primary literature, and wouldn't understand it even if they did.

What's a bigger flag to me is that I'm not seeing any mainstream news on this. Then again, it's not as glamorous as someone getting shot by a police officer, but hey, still concerning.

Audi line-up, selling only Diesel, some Gasoline, but all the rest, EV, HEV, PHEV, FCV, nothing, despite all previous PR/Marketing. Diesel? Made not a single advancement for Diesel ICE. Most advancements were made by French car companies, Fiat and BMW.
