My husband is a very innovative man. He has a dream and he wants to see it become reality. His most recent venture - converting a 1965 Royal Enfield G2 350 that has been refitted with a diesel engine to run on vegetable oil (well, half vegetable oil and half diesel...for now anyway; eventually it will be 2/3 veg oil and 1/3 diesel)!
This is true, made-from-scratch bio-diesel, y'all. This thing gets 150 miles to the gallon running on the bio-diesel. Talk about getting more bang for your buck! Here's a picture of how he has the vegetable oil rigged to go through a filter (and he just adds a bit of diesel once the vegetable oil is in the gas tank):
As he pulled up the driveway yesterday, I thought to myself, "Hmmm...smells like french fries!"
