Cars can run on Pizza oil.

There's a pizza company in Wisconsin that uses the oil from the store's fryers to power its fleet of Volkswagon Diesel Rabbits.  They would normally have to spend $50 to have the used oil disposed of but instead they spent $1500+ on cars and conversion kits.  Cost effective?  Not right away.  But when you can run your car for 9 hours without turning it off and go 3000 miles each week using the 240 gallons of oil that you used to make pizzas...I think it all makes sence.  Not to mention the increase in gas prices lately.  Basically they will never have to buy gas again.
Alan wrote a very nice article on his blog last week about this very subject. Go there to read it.
