Lost it? I don't even know what "it" was, much less where to find "it"

the other things... thecuban has them in her purse.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

vadimgo is on a distinguished road
Wasn't it about the boat fuel?

So, the best we have so far for inboard is diesel, from what you guys wrote...

From what I see around, the "GAS" (either metane or propane/butane versions) question is answered differently in different countries according to the way markets and/or goverments regulate the price. Another queston is availability. The natural gas is not coming here by the tanker from Saudies, but rather by pipe and from Canada at worst. So if we live to see israelies bombing Tehran, it is quite possible that LNG and canola oil would be the only fuel both for my boat and car. Other that that, in the great US of A gasoline is soo affordable, once I am at the marina, the price to fill the sailboat's outboard tank would not become an issue for me any time soon. The drive from home is a bit different story, but again, I do not drive an american car.
As of the other options, both greener and possibly cheaper, this discussion is not even scratching the surface.
Yes, it is really complicated, and yes, unfortunatelly, the way the political machine is working, we will not see any reasonable solution any time soon, regardless of whether it will be an old boy or black boy
