Continental Airlines became the first U.S. Plane to fly on an algae-based biofuel. United Continental Holdings said that the biofuel emissions would equate to a car that drove 30,000 miles.

Me personally, wouldn’t mind having something this energy efficient to drive around town with. Check out the News Article
