Music: Willie Nelson

BioWillie sends legend on the road again

Always a touring warhorse, country legend Willie Nelson limits his band’s carbon footprint by using his own BioWillie vegetable-based automobile fuel. The Red Headed Stranger is also the founder and president of the long-running Farm Aid project, which helps support struggling American farmers by holding all-star benefit concerts and raising public awareness. And with BioWillie, Nelson is getting even more hands-on about the environment. Biodiesel can reduce carbon dioxide exhaust emissions by up to 80% and doesn’t require any vehicle modifications – the fuel is commonly blended with regular diesel.

Currently only available in limited quantities, BioWillie can only be purchased in select Southeastern states and at two California locations. A well known interstate truck stop between Dallas and Waco is home to Carl’s Corner, where BioWillie was first made available. Owner (and long-time Willie associate) Carl Cornelius is reopening the truck stop as “Willie’s Place” later this year.

A longtime supporter of the effort to legalize marijuana, Nelson now boasts even greater green cred, residing among the forefront of environmentally-conscious music superstars.
