i would bring back the senior discount for taxi customers in my area as well as add discounts for disabled or poor on my already lower prices for anyone

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

there is only one taxi in my town and they stopped senior discounts and charge extra for more then four grocery bags i will not do either

Founding Story

i have owned a flexfuel vehicle since 2008 and can not get e-85 near so i researched making it found a company that can make it easily yourself with their equipment and i thought about how much money my employer was spending on fuel and thought if they made it how much good could come of that
