Frank Luke of Snow Mountain, Florida , asks ; “A German inventor says he’s found a way to make cheap diesel fuel out of dead cats. Is this a joke?”
Unconfirmed Sources turned to our guru consultant, Dr. Sawtooth, for an answer, and this is what he had to say:
Dr. Sawtooth> : “Apparently it is true!”
“A Dr Christian Koch, 55, from Kleinhartmannsdorf,Germany, said his method uses old tires, weeds and animal cadavers.”
He says, “They are heated up to 300 Celsius to filter out hydrocarbon which is then turned into diesel by a catalytic converter.The resulting “high quality bio-diesel” costs just 15 cents per pound.
Koch said the cadaver of a fully grown cat can produce 2.5 litres of fuel – meaning around 20 cats are needed for a full tank.
He said: “I fill my tank with my own diesel mixture and have driven it for 105,000 miles without any problems.”
(Frank,I just can’t help asking; ” Does it make the engine purr?” Do you remember that old Esso ad year’s ago? ‘Put a tiger in your tank’? Little did they dream!) Dr. S
