Hershey's Truck....?


We've heard of hydro, electric, cooking oil, bananas and tin cans (from back to the future) powered cars, but have you heard of a chocolate powered car before....? Yes, another one of my bizarre stories....!


Two British adventurers are preparing to set off on an expedition to west Africa in a lorry powered by biodiesel made from waste chocolate.... The Ecotec team with their chocolate diesel vehicle Andrew Pag, 34, from Croydon, south London, and John Grimshaw, 39, from Poole, Dorset, will drive more than 4,500 miles across the Sahara to Timbuktu, in Mali, to raise awareness of green fuels.... Their lorry, called "the Bio-truck", runs on a fuel created by a Lancashire-based producer, Ecotec, which has developed a process to turn chocolate misshapes into biodiesel....


But they will not be able to dip into their tank of hot brown whatever they are if they feel hungry as the biodiesel does not look or smell like chocolate at all....! What about the taste....? The fuel is made from cocoa butter extracted from the waste chocolate.... Most of the chocolate would otherwise end up in landfill....


Parang Hershey's Car ano he-he....! Kung ako nga kapag nag-travel pauwi ng pinas ay iilang packets lang ng chocolates ang dala, itong kotse na to ay isang punong tanke ang dala not to mention the reserve tanks inside the car-boot pa ha-ha....! Di kaya sila langgamin sa dami ng sweets na dala nila....?! This is what i call a sweet way to travel....! Astig....! =D

waste not, sabi da. re-use, re-cycle. hmmm that brown look probably will make me hungry for hot choco all the way to my destination! :)

Pepe said...

Oo nga Nance, just the thought na may dala kang hot choco sa loob ng fuel tank mo ay parang paparada ka na lang sa gilid at iinom ng hot chocolate buong maghapon he-he....! =D

That's a good way to recycle. Ngayon lang nila naisip kasi nagmamahal na ang gasolina. LOL It's a good way to save it from the landfill, though.

Pepe said...

That's a good start Mari....! In the future, baka ma-solve na rin ang problema ng mundo sa rubbish disposals kung makitaan rin nila ng potentials as a reliable source of fuel ang mga dumpsites natin he-he....! =D
