[Healeys] Biofuel conversion?

The only potential biofuels I'm aware of are something similar to diesel 
made from recycled cooking oil and, our favorite, ethanol. I can't 
imagine a diesel-powered Healey; Healey engines have enough torque 
already and ethanol, even at only 10%, is no friend of older cars (and 
some new ones). Exxon had a project to create a gasoline 'substitute' 
from algae, but last I heard they're about ready to throw in the towel 
on the project.
