Things that make it go vrooom. Part I.

I was making Freedom Toast for the kids this morning, when I realized that I haven't done much explaining on this here blog on how my car runs on waste vegetable oil (fry grease). So let me start by showing a picture of the interior. That suspicious looking silver thing is the veggie oil tank, which holds 15 gallons of wholesome, saturated fattyness. (I'll describe it in greater detail later.)
One piece of advice: If you've got one of these things strapped inside the back of your wagon, don't cross the border into Canada. Because on the way back into the US, Homeland Security will have a question, or 20, about it. It happened to me in Michigan one very long day. (Though I'll give them credit for doing their jobs.)
