Fill Up Your Car For $2.14 a Gallon

One of my sons has paid $0 for fuel for almost 15 years. The answer is simple (and illegal because it can't be taxed). He drives a VW Jetta diesel and has made arrangements with several restaurants and McDonalds to collect their used deep-fry grease (WVO or waste vegetable oil). When Rudolph Diesel released his engine, it was designed to burn vegetable oil, NOT petroleum. The mileage is the same as petroleum and WVO is actually been tested as being better for the engine while maintaining almost the same cetane rating.

Mother Earth News ran articles on this decades ago. You do need to add the kit, since most engines require regular diesel fuel to start and then switch over to the tank of free stuff. Not a big deal, but not too many people will take the time.
Funny thing; when I bought my Ram diesel pickup 12 years ago, mainly for towing, diesel was way cheaper than gas. Now it's the opposite, even though diesel is much cheaper to refine. More govt garbage.One of the big problems is the govts virtual ban on diesel cars. Thanks, EPA.
As to WVO being illegal, it is. Unfortunately, some jurisdictions are cracking down and imposing large fines. Good luck.

Would you pay $2.14 for a gallon of gas?

I know I would. According to AAA, the nationwide average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.80... Diesel is even more expensive at $4.06.

Yet despite high fuel costs across the country, a select group of drivers are paying only $2.14 a gallon... more than $1.50 below the national average.

What's the catch?

To be honest, there isn't one. These drivers aren't getting some "special deal," and this isn't some publicity stunt that's only available to a select few. They're simply filling up their tanks with a different kind of transportation...
