Submission + - RV processes own fuel in cross country trip

Anonymous Coward writes: "Frybrid has realized the dream of Dr. Emmet Brown's Delorea: putting garbage directly into your vehicle, and have it be turned into directly into fuel. This fall, Frybrid installed a system into a 40' luxury RV that will suck up waste vegetable oil from the back of restaurants, remove the water and filter it, and then burn the dry and cleaned vegetable oil as fuel. The family drove their converted RV from Seattle to Rhode Island on $47 worth of diesel fuel. Plans are underway for a smaller version of the system to fit in the bed of a pickup truck."

Statistics are no substitute for judgement. -- Henry Clay
