It is about a company that is making generators for restaurants to create energy and heat water using the old cooking oil. Pretty cool. I have pondered myself converting an older diesel car or truck off of cooking oil and driving that to and from work.

And the latest class of criminals: Grease Bandits.
No not some new band or movie, the latest trend is people stealing grease from restaurants to boil down to make a biodiesel additive.

The sad thing is the thief that was caught was going to sell the old cooking oil at $1.35 a gallon- that is what I used to pay for gas!!!
