your fix for high gas prices is here!

BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A German inventor has angered animal rights activists with his answer to fighting the soaring cost of fuel -- dead cats.

Christian Koch, 55, from the eastern county of Saxony, told Bild newspaper that his organic diesel fuel -- a homemade blend of garbage, run-over cats and other ingredients -- is a proven alternative to normal consumer diesel.

"I drive my normal diesel-powered car with this mixture," Koch said. "I have gone 170,000 km (106,000 miles) without a problem."

The Web site of Koch's firm, "Alphakat GmbH", says his patented "KDV 500" machine can produce what he calls the "bio-diesel" fuel at about 23 euro cents (30 cents) a liter, which is about one-fifth the price at petrol stations now.

Koch said around 20 dead cats added into the mix could help produce enough fuel to fill up a 50-liter (11 gallon) tank.

But the president of the German Society for the Protection of Animals, Wolfgang Apel, said using dead cats for fuel was illegal.

"There's no danger for cats and dogs in Germany because this practice is outlawed in Germany," Apel told Bild on Wednesday in a story entitled "Can you really make fuel out of cats?"

"We're going to keep an eye on this case," Apel said

Re: your fix for high gas prices is here!

lol yeah i dont know who this guy had the idea of doing this....but it sounds kinda crazy



there is a easy way to make bio-fuel with used cook oil that works great on deisel engines


all you need is used cooking oil( you can get that easy from your local fast food joint) and you also need lie( sp) that you can find at home depot (etc.) and you need some racing methanol(sp)

that mix comes out to be like .76cents a gallon and you can make it at home, the only funky thig is that it will smell like french frys everywhere you go....lol

if it smells like french fries, maybe cats will follow you home. then let them hang out at your place just in case you need yet another alternative source of diesel.
