Dead cats for fuel.....now that's interesting.
It appears that there may be another solution on the way. :thumbsup:
Leave it to us corn fed hoosiers to come up with an alternative fuel. Ever heard of "E85"? It is a corn based ethanol fuel that is manufactured in Indiana and is already available at a few gas stations in the state. Hopefully this will work out well and ease some of the pain from high gas prices. I don't know alot about E85 yet but alot of newer cars are already E85 compatible. If you have a newer car or truck you can look behind the fuel door (where your gas cap is) and read the label, if your car is E85 compatible it will be stated on the label! :flowers:

JOOC, what kind of mileage do you get out of E85 verses gasoline?

Here in SE Wisconsin we are mandated a blend of 10% ethanol. Midstate, full strength gasoline is sold.

Comparing the two, the ethanol blend yields about a 2 - 3 mpg mileage penalty in my car, and my wifes van. Talking with others, this mileage reduction seems typical.

We have a school bus touring Canada right now that runs on recycled deep frying oil from restaurants. The cost of this fuel is about 15% less than diesel fuel.

So far, no reports of an irresistible urge to eat french fries after it passes by, but the situation is being monitored.

Actually, petroleum or crude oil, is formed from decayed vegetation and animal life from hundreds of thousands of years ago so dead cats is really nothing new.

WOW!! Dead Catfuel. Will you need a CAT-alytic converter? Can you use a CAT-o-nine tails? Or are only cats which used up their nine lives used? Does CAT-sup count? Is that what Catwoman used in her CAT-mobile? Could this end up CAT-astrophic for OPEC? What a concept. Maybe this will CATch on. Would this go under the CAT-egory of crude or alternative fuel? What if a CAT got your tongue? Then what? I guess they'll have to change the title of the book "101 Things You Can Do With A Dead CAT"! :thumbsup: Well I think I'll take a CAT-nap. :flowers:

:thumbsup: This is a cataclysmic event. I am disturbed by this.
Why, oh why, did you let the cat out of the bag? :flowers:

What could this lead to, if it indeed catches on?

One thing for sure, if it does catch on.
The inventor could become quite the fat cat. :trumpet:

Will you have to give CAT calls when you go to a station?
I did have a Buick Le Sabre with a WildCAT engine. :flowers:
Never had a Cougar, or a Lynx.
Would you need a litter box trailing behind?
Do you dare take the CAT in the cradle? :trumpet:
I never had CATscratch fever, but would you need a lot of scratch to buy this CATfuel?
