Make Mine a Grease Car

If you have a diesel car, you can convert it to one that runs entirely on leftover vegetable oil that would otherwise be thrown away by your friendly neighborhood greasy spoon. Even non-diesel cars can be converted to run on biodiesel-spiked fuel. Clean-burning and non-polluting, biodiesel fuel may be the wave of the future.

My friend has a Volvo diesel that he runs on used cooking oil he collects from local restaurants. It takes a little work to filter it and it creates as much CO2 as regular diesel fuel but his exhaust smells like fried chicken.
