Earlier today we spoke about the Bio-bug, or what people have been calling a Poo-powered Car — let us hope that you are not around that when the thing backfires. All jokes aside, there is nothing new with this technology, as it just uses the methane from waste to help power up the car — we have seen something like this shown on the BBC show Top Gear.
This got us thinking as to what other alternative fuels could be used to power a car? We found an insightful article written by Andrew Hough from the Telegraph — some we already know about, but others you will be very surprised.
The first and one that I thought a lot about when I was a child was a car that could run on thin air. This would be a perfect solution and would offer zero emissions. The way that this would work is by using the enzyme from soil bacterium — not certain if this would ever happen, but it would be a perfect solution and wean us from gasoline.
One that did surprise me was a car that could run on chocolate, and this one can reach speeds of 145mph. This car was made from vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes and soybeans. I am not certain if this is a joke or not, but certainly would be interesting to see coming towards you.
These are just two alternative fuels to power cars, but it is the poo-powered car that cannot make me stop feeling sick just thinking about it. What other alternative fuels would you like to see power our vehicles?
