Can i charge a 12v battery with two 6v solar panels.?

Yes, but you'll need a voltage boost regulator and preferably maximal sunlight on the panels. Many conventional 12V Pb batteries require 13.8V for charging. A charge meter and automatic shutoff are desirable.

Diesel, Gasoline, or biodiesel car?

Pretty cheap. You'll want to determine fuel efficiencies between selected car models. Also consider how your fuel expenditures would be affected if you had a gas-electric hybrid?

Fuel Question , What Fuel is the cheapest and gives the Highest Mileage per Litre in Engines ?

Steam or electric are probably cheapest TO RUN... But most expensive to buy.... Butane would probably be next... It is actually a Mixture of Butane, Methane and a few others... In Australia it is the same as we use for the BBQ..... This would probably be next.... but unless the car is Factory converted,... then you will probably need some Petrol/Gasoline just to start .. You use maybe 2 or 3 Cupfuls each time so you don't use Much... It is also a Good backup if you run out of LPG....... The rest... it depends on th e Government and Fuel Companies which one is cheapest but what it SHOULD be id From cheapest up... Diesel, Unleaded, Premium Unleaded Forget the rest... They would be cheap to run but the conversion would be so expensive it would be not worth the effort

If gasoline is the same price in my town as diesel and biodiesel (it's always the same price) what fuel is the best for me? buying a new car?

Energy density says with diesel at 35.8 megajoules per liter and gasoline at 34.2, you should go a bit further with diesel. Energy density Wikipedia Diesel, esp. from petro sources, tends to create more hydrocarbon pollutants and particulates per distance traveled, esp on short hops where the engine doesn't warm up to it's higher efficiency range. Diesels like running on long trips. Diesel engines tend to be noisier. Diesel could have issues with fuel gelling in very cold weather if it has insufficient winter additives, and sometimes even that isn't enough for a frigid weather startup.. Gasoline is more refined than diesel and likely has a bigger production environmental footprint than diesel, although diesel has a bigger combustion environmental footprint. Biodiesel can be better depending on its source. Usually you do not have the choice of diesel vs. gasoline for the same model of car, so there will be other factors to consider besides fuel type. Best wishes shopping for your next vehicle.

If many people switched to bio-diesel, how many cars could be powered only on used cooking oil?

Bio Diesel is Great... It can be made from Many Organic Products INCLUDING used Cooking Oils. I had a Hilux Diesel I ran on it for a while. To get an Accurate number of Vehicles running on ONLY Used Cooking Oil is impossible due to the Fact that there is no way of Knowing how many get oil and put it into the fuel tank right away... after being Filtered. I know 2 People who collect used Cooking Oils and Filter it three or 4 times before putting it into the Fuel Tank... Thus there is no way to be able to add these people to the list You could probably get rough Figures... not sure where.... I assume this is for some type of exam or similar??? Sorry I can't give a better answer but as you see by what I did answer... It is Impossible to be accurate

What do I do with my plastic water bottles?

DIY recycling projects are always cool, especially when you can turn your trash into something new and useful. There are many ways to recycle before, but it turns out there's so much that you can do with recycling plastic bottles that they deserved their own post. The PET plastic that most plastic beverage bottles are made of is a fairly useful material - it's resilient, flexible, transparent and food safe. As such, there are probably countless applications for these bottles that will give them second lives.

Can I add establsihed anaerobic compost to a new aerobic pile?

Basically, to make aerobic compost, you simply gather organic material put it into a bin or a heap in the garden, aerate it and then add it to your soil. However, in reality, aerobic composting is a little more involved than just that. The right quantity and types of materials you put into your compost heap makes a big difference to the quality and composting time of the resulting composted feedstock. You need to think of your compost heap as a complete self-contained ecosystem full of aerobic microbes, and to survive, this ecosystem needs the right mix of ingredients such as "Oxygen" (from the air), "Water", "Warmth" and "Food" (from the composting materials), with the quality of the resulting compost depending on how well you control these four factors. Decaying organic matter is a favorite haunt for many animals and insects with the redworm (also known as Red Wriggler Worms) or the night crawler worms being the most important. Both red-worms, night-crawlers and even garden worms can eat vast quantities of decaying vegetation at one end and due to their digestive system, excrete from the other end organic compounds that enrich the composted feedstock, while their burrowing actions help separate and aerate the compost at the same time. But as well as redworms worms, naturally occurring active micro-organisms (mainly bacteria, aerobic microbes, and fungi) do most of the hard work of breaking down the large organic materials into a fine compost material. All you have to do is provide them with the right conditions to grow and multiply and they will do all the work for you.

Should we recycle our poop into food again?

Farmers have recycled ***** material back into the earth ever since we moved from hunter-gatherers to a farming society. Turn of the century they used manure from their animals. Modern day municipalities sell the sewage slurry to farmers to fortify their land for better crops. It is good for the environment because it is being used as compost and eliminates the need of applying dangerous chemicals to the land that end up in our food and water.
