An American (dog) in Paris



This December we bought a 2003 VW Golf TDI. Not only does it get close to 50 mpg, you can also run it (or any other diesel-powered vehicle) on used cooking oil. We bought a conversion kit from Greasecar and installed it over spring break this March. (Thanks, Dad!). 

Thinking of installing a Greasecar kit on your own car? I have provided  pictures of our installation, plus detailed commentary and tips

You can also read about my driving adventures, which I will update whenever I'm in the mood.

There's also a documentary about greasecars coming out this spring, called  "Greasy Rider." You can watch the preview here.

Most restaurants are happy to give away their used cooking oil,  since they otherwise have to pay to dispose of it.

 Ain't she a beaut?
