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.
