Car runs on coffee

Folks who need to have their regular cup of joe each day can definitely identify with this vehicle known as the Carpuccino. What used to be a regular ‘88 Volkswagen Scirocco has been highly modified (you don’t say) for it to run off of coffee grounds. Of course, mileage is worse than a ummer since you will need up to 56 espressos in order to move the vehicle a mere mile. Economics-wise, this translates to it being 50 times more expensive than using regular gas, but it will definitely keep coffee growers happy, eh? A classic case of doing it because they can, and practicality is thrown out of the window.
