Not to mention the environmental impact of all the land that's used solely for producing the basics for biodiesel has been under some scrutiny lately.

this Terrano simply uses cooking oil KFC would have chucked out (or given to soap/make-up companies). It really is turning garbage into something useful and hence good for the environment...
Yeah but that has been going on forever... they add like some lye or lime or somethign to it and filter it ect.. There was an episode on Trucks like 4 years agon about it.

I heard the exhaust smells like fries.

Yep, its $44.95 US on Steam with the $5 prepurchase discount, totally worth it.

yup, ppl have been doing it in different forms for years...but it was the first time I've had a ride in one

also, there's a bit of a difference between what they did years ago and what this guy did....since KFC switched to trans fat-free oil, it's super easy...change the seals in the fuel pump and that's IT...whereas the old trans fat-rich oil had to be pre-heated, etc...usually worked best with a dual-tank setup (diesel for startup/shutdown, heated veggie shortening for in between)...expensive and elaborate...with this one...it's simply toss it into the tank and away you go.

Also, this is very much a novelty in the North...sadly

anyways...I'll toss up the link once our online version of today's paper goes live.

There's a guy in town here who built a Diesel Cabrio rabbit that ran on deep-fryer oil from local restaurants. He also had an old Merc that ran on it too.

I was thinking about making my own bio-diesel this winter for the beater, since I don't think anywhere in Victoria sells it yet. Plus I can get the methanol you need for blending it from work.

He might have been. I haven't seen the guy since Bow Wow closed.

And Adam, once I figure out this whole bio-diesel thing, I might let you know on that. I was thinking about doing the 2-tank system so I could use fryer oil since I can get my hands on another tank for super cheap, but if I can make bio-diesel I might do that instead. And even if the beater doesn't make it more than a winter, it'll still be another $500 well spent in the name of science!
