  1. It’s an interesting concept, but if you have to spend a bunch of money up front to get the benefits of saving 11 gallons of diesel a day, the cost better be pretty low to make that a worthwhile investment. Long term I could see this catching on, but I can understand someone not wanting to be out of pocket a lot of money hoping to recoup the cost quickly enough.

  2. One question not answered by the article:

    Which is cheaper–burning diesel all night long, or plugging in? Obviously the cost of the former depends on the price of gas, but neither cost was mentioned in the article.
