One man's experience with Waste Vegetable Oil

Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) is an exciting alternative fuel. It's basically free (you're doing a service to commercial users of oils), and the conversion on a diesel truck isn't too expensive. Over the coming weeks we'll be featuring a lot of news about WVO, and to whet your appetite, here's a great testimonial from WVO user KevinRobinson123 on Hummer Network Forums:

SVO/WVO: Here's my calculation: I spent a total of $3,000 on fuel last year. My heated veggie oil system, installed by one of Skiman's dealers in Ohio, cost me $3,000 installed in my H1. That's a 1 year return.
 
I just sold my gas pickup truck and bought a diesel pickup today since my H1 likes my mechanic more than me. Yes, you must collect and filter your free fuel or I will do that for you for $1.25 a gallon. I only have 2,000 gallons left.
 
To the nay-sayers, yes, keep paying for #2 diesel at the pump and stay away from my free fuel. Oh, and the home heating oil savings are icing on the cake.

BMW unveils twin turbo diesel X5 concept

Autoblog has the scoop on BMW's new yuppietruck: the massive, aging X5 mated to an unusual 2L twin turbo 4 cylinder diesel. Producing almost 300lb/ft of torque and slurping babybottles worth of gas, I think this would be a big hit in the marketplace.

Dennis Rodman's heartbreaking Hummer H1

I'm a Hummer fan. I think they're best when filthy, scratched, and shooting carbon dioxide in black plumes in the air. It's an emotional thing, and I get pretty disgusted when I see a Hummer that belongs at the bottom of the ocean. Dennis Rodman, in suitable tacky fashion, has just such a Hummer.

As reported in the ever-trashy TMZ, Dennis Rodman keeps a silver wagon in California. What he's done to it makes me more sad than those tortured cows that sparked the recall. Witness:

Yes, I puked in my mouth too.

Fastest Hummer on earth

This is an old video but it never ceases to amaze me what a well-tuned diesel engine can do!

..and I have to confess, seeing all that black smoke belching out the truck's pipe doesn't hurt either.

The skinny behind this rig: Pacific Performance put this thing together. As you can see from their gallery of this beast you can see that a lot of work went into it, from a body lift to a massive array of fans for the radiator to what appears to be a Duramax conversion. So this may not be a $5k drop-in to your open top, but it does give you an idea of what's possible.
