Out of the fryer and into the fuel tank

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.

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?
