FuelPod2 Converts Grease to BioFuels

by Mark R


I’ve been hearing a lot these days about BioFuels, and in an age where our gas prices are just getting higher, it may be time to start thinking about seriously putting them into operation.

In fact, I once heard of a process that could convert ordinary fatty waste, like the stuff used in deep-fat fryers into fuel. You know what that means. All that stuff at McDonalds could be used to power our cars.

Fortunately, there is the FuelPod2. I have no idea if there is any improvement from the original FuelPod, but this one does something pretty amazing: convert greasy waste into ecologically safe biodiesel. Not only that, the biodiesel is good enough to run in a standard diesel engine without any modifications.

Do you realize what this means? All McDonalds and other fast food restaurants have to do is pour their excess waste into this FuelPod2, and they can have some instant fuel. Talk about some instant cash. Fast food may be bad for us, but it looks like it might end up being good for the environment.

I’m not certain how much practical savings you would have with this device. After all, it might take a typical consumer a while before he or she finds all the fat he or she needs. Right now, you can buy this for about 2,500. That price is in pounds, by the way, which makes me wonder if this is some European release.

You can easily run a normal car with spare oil. I don’t know why this machine is so highly priced because all it needs to do is filter the oil to get rid of any solid.

It is a good idea to get your engine modified if you are planning to use more than 15% oil because it can cause damage to the engine.

So when you go to a Mc drive through you can get some diesel while you wait.

It has to be European release, the steering wheel is on the ‘wrong’ side and look how skinny those garage doors are in the pic with the ad.
Either way, 2,500 pounds wouldn’t be much. That’s 2 years of filling up 2x a month with gas prices the way they are now. Put it on credit and make your $50 payments 2x a month…in the long run it’s more than worth it.

Just be sure this type of fuel will work in your car!
