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.
