    Alternative source of oil

    Turkey waste into oil?

    http://www.discover.com/issues/apr-0.../anything-oil/

    This plant outside Chicago is able to produce 500 barrels of oil every day from waste from a nearby turkey processing factory.

    During the Great Depression, my father told me he used to help his dad get ready to drive 80 mies from the farm to the city, they used to boil up soap and lard to add to the engine for lubrication, then drain it as soon as they arrived at the city.

    Don't think you could do that to cars these days.
