At last! Fill up your gas tank with spent Coffee Grounds

Now this is what we’ve all been waiting for. Our love of great coffee may someday fuel our addiction to cars!
Cafe Racer Touted as a “carbon negative” vehicle, the 1975 GMC pick-up known as the Cafe Racer is fueled by spent coffee grounds (or most trash) through a process known as gasification.

‘What is gasification? Gasification is the general term used for processes where heat is used to transform solid biomass into a “natural gas like” flammable fuel. Through gasification, we can take nearly any solid biomass waste and convert it into a clean burning, carbon neutral, gaseous fuel. Whether starting with wood scraps or coffee grounds, municipal trash or junk tires, the end product is a flexible gaseous fuel you can burn in your gasoline engine, cooking stove, heating furnace and/or flamethrower.’ (click here for more info on the Cafe Racer)

    Coolness. If it will run on crappy industrial beer, we might have a winner here!

  2. Hey Mr. Joel.
    Thanks for commenting and I agree completely. How about the Bud-Mobile or the Coors Caddy??
    I look forward to the day when I can dump a 12 pack of crappy beer or empty my french press into my gas tank.

    There is a SOLUTION to high gasoline prices.

    The Transduced Engine

    GASOLINE NOT NEEDED. The creation of the transduced engine is by a former United States Marine whos remained unnamed do to threats.

    The engine used no fossil fuel no giant 300 pound batteries, but a self contained 346hp fluid dynamics worm drive powerplant. Already capable of going into any vehicle here in the US. The engine is a combination of electrical and fluid dynamics to produce power to the drive system with compressed air flow and on the go regenerative components in a self charging package.

    It has no spark plugs, no fuel injection system no exhaust, no emissions, no polutions, no antifreeze, a list of 100 regular things a gas or desiel engine requires.

    So what gives why cant everyone have one. Well the Federal Goverment doesnt want it built. Why? Because Oil guys will loose there shorts, Big business will loose money, an estimated 500,000 would loose there jobs in the Auto Unions because what they build is not needed for the transduced motor.

    BUT if the Big 3 did utilize the Transduced Engine it would take only 140 days for the Suadi Kings to loose 10 trillion dollars in oil sales forcing them to depend on the US not the other way around.

    You really want to make a difference and never have to pay for gas again. REALLY?!! Then post this everywhere and on JULY 4th 2008 be ready for the introduction of the Transduced Engine information to be releaded Built BY AMERICANS FOR AMERICANS!!!!!

    Post this and send to everyone you know.
