    Hello guys,
    I'm kinda curious about Dimethyl Ether. Will it be adopted and widely used as an alternative fuel in the future? It's sure cleaner than diesel. :eusa_eh:

    There's a lot of interest in Europe but until it's possible toxic effects are known it won't be used for much here in the States. So far they still don't know its effects on the endocrine system, what effects if any on the human reproductive system and what possible hydrologic effects it may have.
