We should all do this.

It would be great, but we would have to own a restaurant to have enough veg. oil to use as fuel!

Would we? I think plenty of resturaunts throw out so much, they wouldn't miss it. Of course with the way people are today (greedy) there would be a price on used french fry grease too after a while.

Most restaurants already have oil disposal contracts with companies to remove their grease. Those companies consider it theft if you take grease out their grease traps because they clean it and resell it. So unless you own your own restaurant (Or know someone who does), you'll find it problematic to find a steady supply of grease.

Thanks for clarifying that for me.

remember a newspaper is always going to juice a story up to sell it.

Nice to do, but not so smart to tell reporters about it.
Wait till he gets a visit from the govt, demanding taxes on all the diesel fuel he ISN'T using.
Already happened to many other people:
ob Teixeira decided it was time to take a stand against U.S. dependence on foreign oil.
So last fall the Charlotte musician and guitar instructor spent $1,200 to convert his 1981 diesel Mercedes to run on vegetable oil. He bought soybean oil in 5-gallon jugs at Costco, spending about 30 percent more than diesel would cost.
His reward, from a state that heavily promotes alternative fuels: a $1,000 fine last month for not paying motor fuel taxes. He has been told to expect another $1,000 fine from the federal government.
To legally use veggie oil, state officials told him, he would have to first post a $2,500 bond.

Hey, Ding Dong, it's against the law for a restaurant to throw away grease. Restaurants actually pay people to come and clean out their used grease and haul it away. I guess you are so focused on bashing greedy people that you run your mouth without having any idea what you are talking about.

Thank you, have a nice day.
