Patrick Moore's Mercedes eats veggies. Well, vegetable oil.
And starting soon his former diesel-guzzling 1993 model will dine weekly on a local eatery's oil.
This week, the new director of the Coastal Conservation League's South Coast office picked up his first 5-gallon batch of brown, used vegetable oil at Bateaux Restaurant in Port Royal to run his fuel-efficient car -- for free.
Because vegetable oils burn like diesel, a converted diesel engine can run on olive oil, rapeseed oil, peanut oil or any other vegetable oil by adding a heated fuel tank and special fuel lines.

Good for him, at least he is trying to do something about fuel cost instead of sitting back doing nothing and only complaining.:clap::clap::clap:

Yeah but the problem is that eatting fried foods is bad for us. This is like burning fat people as fuel in our cars......

Well I am sure there not one person that 100% does not ever eat fried foods. As far as burning fat people in cars as fuel at least you'll go farther than burning a skinny person with nothing on his bones. As the old saying goes fat people can keep you warm in the winter and shaded in the summer. What can a skinny person do?:laugh::D:D
