It turns a regular diesel car into a waste vegetable oil burning vehicle. My husband and I take the oil after being used at local restaurants and burn it in our vehicles. This not only saves the oil from being trucked off Cape Cod (where we live) but it helps us and some local friends lessen our dependence on foreign oil.
Lynne’s vehicle will join a bevy of other Maker Faire projects whose focus is sustainability and alternative energy. So get your early bird tickets now, and see you there. Next up: powering a MakerBot Replicator with energy generated by waste veggie oil to print parts needed to make engine conversion kits. Ahhh now that’s meta!
