An interesting thing happening in my birth town so I hope my co-blogger BiofuelSimon will forgive me for swiping this news from him.
Cops in Manila, Philippines, are using a new strategy to apprehend criminals….by making them hungry with the smell of french fries coming from their patrol cars.
According to this article from DowJones, police forces in the city’s financial district, Makati, are using a mixture of diesel (40%) and waste cooking oil (60%) donated by McDonalds to run their cars.
If successful, cops throughout the country will consider using recycled cooking oil to fuel their vehicles. Other restaurants are reportedly considering donating their used cooking oil as well.
These cops will soon probably have their hands full nabbing grease thieves just like what’s happening in certain parts of the US.
