Today, I would like to present to you Le Petit Beurre, Little Butter, the inspiration for the title of this blog. You see, not only is this body powered by plants, my car is too. Most of the time.
Le Petit Beurre is our 1982 Diesel Mercedes that runs on vegetable oil. That's right, vegetable oil. And yes, she smells like french fries, unless she's busy smelling like wontons, because we run her on used vegetable oil. Dirty old, used up, thrown out, unwanted vegetable oil, commonly called WVO for "waste vegetable oil," powers our car. Free fuel. Free from conflict, free from supporting big oil, half the emissions. I can't begin to tell you how much that turns me on.
