    Wrong, stored in a dark cool place I have stored oil for at least a year. Hemp oil is no different than soy bean oil in that its a tri-triglyceride molecule. And planes burn JP8 which is highly refined diesel so yes, it could be used as fuel in planes as well as trucks.
    I'm no hippie either but I do know all thinks "oil as fuel."
    And it doesnt oxidize, it polymerizes which turns it real thick and into the worlds stickiest stuff ever..

    Potato potato... It doesn't have the storage life of diesel, yet... that's the point I was making.

    Yes, it does. Diesel will grow algae in as little as 3-4 months. oil wont polymerize after 2 years if stored properly.

    Like solar powered planes. Nice idea, but no practical use. May replace someone's experimental aircraft, but that's about as far as the concept will advance in near term.

    I was just referring to the airplane. They were still making rope, bags and many other products out of hemp when I was a kid. In fact that's where the term "smoke a rope" originated, I believe.
