What Do You Think is the Best Feedstock for Biodiesel Production?

To think of Algae as a solution to Energy problems imagine this. 2.25 acres
of soybean can create 2 drums (55 gallons) of Biodiesel, while 2.25 acres of
micro Algae can produce a jumbo railcar (23,000 gallons) of Biodiesel.

Oil palm 635 gal/acre
Jatropha 202 gallons/acre
Tung oil tree 100gal/acre

Some sources on the internet say that Algae production that high is untrue, what do you think?
