If you have a diesel engine in your car, then you can have a spanking brand new source of fuel. You can say bye bye to gas prices. All you need is to have a conversion kit from Greasecar Vegetable Fuel Systems. The kit will your diesel car to run on vegetable oil. That is right. You are talking about the same olive oil waste that was used in frying your meals at the local restaurants. Now, you do not have to go buy all kinds of canola, coconut, soybean and peanut oils yet. Make arrangements with some local restaurants who will be all too happy to let you have the waste. Otherwise, they will have to pay an cooking oil waste company to transport somewhere else. Now may be the time to have it free. Once the genie is out of the box and the nascent technology catches up, the cooking oil waste may become a product you will buy.
In the Central Valley of California, and precisely two professors of FPU have gained some experience converting their and family members' cars. In an effort to raise money for Mennonite Central Committee, they will go on a cross-country trek in a rebuilt Jetta retrofitted to use the vegetable oil. That is the new local buzz according to startribune.com from Minneapolis and Minnesota or the Twin Cities. Now if you want to give kudos to these guys or help raise money for MCC which is involved in international development projects, go to "Fritter-Fried Journey" to do so. Ken Friesen and Marshall Johnston have a great sense of humor. They want to show that there are alternative to fossil fuels. They are ready to take the trip and raise money for a good cause. Call them crazy, but figure out that they tap into something that most of us should do. Buy a diesel car and convert the gasoline fossil fuel guzzler to vegetable oil! The good thing about driving a vegetable oil-fueled car is that it pollutes less the environment. Here is what you will read on the site, "...diesel cars can run on used deep-fry oil from any Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant, or McDonalds french frier. The result is an engine that uses only recycled, renewable fuel, and runs cleaner and more efficiently than one using fossil-fuel (and smells like whatever was cooked in the oil!)."
Professor Johnston is influencing many other people as he drives his cool Jetta to campus. He teaches history and classics while Ken Friesen teaches political science and history at Fresno Pacific. Now these are two guys who can get their fingers dirty despite their huge brain! D'Oh, it takes brain to figure out this can be done too!
What if these two teachers get so much work that they decide to quit FPU! No. They can hire some guys to do it while keeping their teaching jobs. Any way, give your support to Friesen Fritter Fired Fossil Fuel Free Drive!
