When it comes to feeding your vehicle with juice, you
probably haven’t given it much thought past
petrol vs. diesel.
After all, these are the fuels that most people come into contact with.
But just outside of the mainstream, there’s a whole world of
weird and wonderful fuels…
INTRODUCING ALTERNATIVE FUELS
Whether it’s to help the environment, or simply to prove that it’s possible,
ingenious innovators have come up with ways to recycle
natural products into unlikely fuels that
really can power cars.
But Wait! Not just any car - generally, special engines or motors
will also be required.
The Cutting Edge of innovation
The Humble Onion
If you’re tired of getting tears in your eyes every time you chop an
onion, then maybe it’s time to put them to another use.
Once fermented, onions produce
which can then be converted into electricity to power electric cars.
Electric cars are a great eco alternative to traditional motors.
Best of all, the leftover mashed
up onions can then be turned
into food for cattle,

Chip fat can be a key component in
bio-fuel – an exciting alternative
to diesel which
almost any converted diesel engine can run on!
Okay, so you can’t just leave your car out in the wind
and hope for the best, but specialised engines
designed to use compressed air
can make for a very cost-
Unfortunately, powering cars with air
isn’t considered a viable option right now,
however , who knows what the future will hold…
Probably the latest innovation is a new bio-fuel made from
left over beer
Now available in New Zealand,
not just for those who seek it out,
but in petrol stations across the country!
