Veggie Oil Bus

While I was at the auto parts store today, I heard a guy mention he was getting 10 mpg.

Of course that peaked my interest and I asked "Whatcha driving?"

He answered that it was a 1977 Greyhound bus he's converting to vegetable oil!

He's a musician, and his band travels in it a lot, and he's sick of the price of fuel for it!

I told him about my electric vehicle projects and the people I know doing bio-diesel and veggie oil conversions.

He's playing in a bar tonight from 5-10. I might go over there to say hello!

I would love to follow up with this guy, maybe make a video on what he's doing in his conversion!!!
