    I love my Landcruiser but the foul smell from the tailpipe reminds me that it's not the best daily driver for this planet.

    Short of putting in a diesel engine and switching to biodiesel, how can I ease my emissions guilt?

    http://www.terrapass.com

    Terrapass lets you calculate your emissions; you sign up (pay up really), then Terrapass uses that money to invest in projects that reduce industrial carbon dioxide emissions.

    Sort of balances things out.

    I am going to double my emissions to offset any gain you realize. From now on I am driving to the corner store and leaving the motor idling. Plus I am going to use my outboard motor and chain saw more.

    that is unless you send an appropriate amount to semlinpass@paypal.com

    This reminds me of the guy that goes to the doctor and tells the doctor that it hurts every time he hits himself in the head with a hammer. The doctor asks him why he does that and he says "because it feels so good when I stop."

    I can't image walking out to my truck every day and sticking my nose up it's a$$ and sniffing. It's not a dog you know.

    I am truly a dog lover and to ensure all my dogs are in good health they get a good butt sniff each and every day. :D Mind you, I don't do the sniffing. They sniff each other and report the result back to me before I leave for work.
