Biodiesel Basics #33: Researchers Create Race Car Powered by Chocolate

Categories: General Info

Researchers at the University of Warwick in the UK have created and tested a Formula 3 race car that runs on biodiesel. Here are some facts:

  • The Formula 3 car is powered by a biodiesel engine that is fueled by chocolate and vegetable oil, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to regular diesel.
  • The car meets all of the requirements for a Formula 3 car, including exceeding speeds of over 125 miles per hour.
  • In addition, other components of the car are bio-based as well, including a steering system made from carrots and a frame made from potatoes.
