Booze To Fuel Cars?


Posted August 31, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Hey, ever wonder if after a drunken night on the town where you discover your car has run out of gas, if you could puke into the tank and make your car run?

Well, technology has gotten us one step closer to that dream.

According to Professor Graeme Walker from the University of Abertay Dundee, leftover grains from beer and Whiskey could be turned into biofuels in a cost-effective and efficient manner. In fact, any distilling process leaves behind by-products, including the distillation of corn into ethanol.

Hell yeah…

"Our research will be looking at the far more complicated process of turning waste products from industry into bioethanol as an example of a second-generation biofuel,” Walker says. “These products are currently disposed of or processed for animal feed and turning them into fuel would be an attractive use of the resource. At the moment many technical challenges remain to converting waste biomass into fuel. We will focus on finding more efficient and cost effective processes."

So there you go. It’s official. I expect to see all you irresponsible drunks vomiting in your gas tanks by year’s end…seriously…
