Extreme Green Segment: Grease Car Conversion
Special Guest: Matt Hand

Greg joins Matt Hand for a hands-on exploration of engines run on straight vegetable oil and they discuss the somewhat related, and much more legal alterative, bio-diesel. Originally, diesel engines were designed to run on peanut oil and have been subsequently modified to use thinner more petroleum-based fuels. Because of this connection, a little ingenuity can go a long way to make any diesel engine run on straight veggie oil.

Bio diesel is considered a renewable fuel, able to be blended in any proportion with petroleum based fuel to lower emissions, and can be run in diesel engines without any modifications to the engine itself.
