handicus: Good WVO source (xposted to biodiesel)

I work at Whole Foods Market (specifically the one in west orange, NJ) and they are very generous with their wvo. I get it from the kitchen, diverting it from the outdoor barrel, free of any water.

Im sure that any other whole foods in the country would be just as cool with their oil barrel. If it is protected from rain it wont have any water, and its changed every 3 days. Just thought id get the word out!

charlie_ihsan: Greasecar FUN!

So, we all know that petro-based fuel is getting "out of style" but I'm looking for a new vehicle anyway, because mine's going to die sometime in the future. A thought struck me. Biodiesel! So I was looking stuff up on that, turns out it doesn't work the best in Michigan... anyway that's too much work. Somewhere along the line I found a link to the Greasecar Vegetable Fuel System. It floored me!

So that's what I'm going to do for a car. My reasoning is this: it's better for the environment, and it just takes a little math to see how it's cheap. Over the summer, I'd fill my tank once a week. That's 30 bucks a pop. Thirty times for fifty two weeks puts me up at $1560. To do an entire fuel kit in the car costs $1445 (the conversion kit and the
on-board filter). That's going to pay for itself in the next year, definitely.

So I'm on the journey to learn as much as possible about the Greasecar Vegetable Fuel System while I use my two jobs to save up and get it done!

I'm looking to get a VW golf. The 4 door kind-- it'll make my insurance lower, haha.

Anyway, anyone looking for more info on the greasecar can go to www.greasecar.com!!
