So you never answered the most important question. What vehicle can you use pure biodiesel in, and where can you buy it?
I'll help you out since you seem to avoid my questions. The answer is NONE, and NOWHERE.
Also, as was pointed out rare earth metals aren't rare, just currently mined mostly in China due to cost.
You're not trying to educate people, you obviously are trying to serve your client's or company's best interests.
This guy only describes the positives, which are very few. If he listed all of the negatives, He would make himself sound looney for advocating it.
It should also be pointed out that later this year Renault will have a highway-capable EV with an entry price around £14k ($22k).
few years ago, all diesel cars from volkswagen/audi were ready to run on pure biodiesel (not pure rape oil or other cold pressed veg. oil). But when the oil-industrie fears to loose market share to the farmer, the EU put pressure to tax bio-diesel (and veg. oil) higher. Today biodiesel is priced higher then diesel which has up to 7% biodiesel added (to the welfare of the oil industry) (now they can dictate the price for biodiesel)

You write multiple pages with your pro diesel assertions while at the same time discredit "EV supporting websites", you pan comments for using "old data" and say that we must figure in the cost of building electric cars and solar panels.
At the same time you have not given one link. No peer reviewed, reports from your DOE or DOD coworkers, No listing of your "dangerous materials" in motors or batteries and from your side, we have not seen a dirt to wheel studies on your precious biofuel or the cost to build the powertrain for the cars that burn it.
Without corroborated facts, you're just blowing hot gaseous air, etc...
