Now, diesel from dead cats!

Asian News International
London, September 14, 2005


A German inventor has claimed to found a way to make cheap diesel fuel out of dead cats.

Dr Christian Koch, 55, says that his method uses old tyres, weeds and animal cadavers, which are heated up to 300 Celsius to filter out hydrocarbon, which is then turned into diesel by a catalytic converter.

He said that the high quality bio-diesel costs just 15 pence per litre, and only 20 cats are needed to produce 2.5 litres of fuel.

"I tank my car with my own diesel mixture and have driven it for 105,000 miles without any problems," Fox News quoted him as saying.

Animal rights associations, however, have criticised the method.

"This is as bad as experimenting on animals," Annelise Krauss of the Dresden Animal Protection Association was quoted as saying.

ahhhh ohhh i think i see you point BUT my question is how did they get into that state? AND if we use this fuel full time how do you handle supply and demand?

Are people *really* this bad at reading comprehension? :think:

"Dr Christian Koch, 55, says that his method uses old tyres, weeds and animal cadavers"

The reporter decided to spice it up a little with the "dead cat" quote. :rolleyes:

the dude that invented the diesel engine did it to allow it to run on this type of fuel. Originally, it was for some sort of peanut/soy type bean with a high oil composition. He made the engine so farmers could grow their own fuel.
