Frontiers in energy research

This article describes a surgeon who claims to have used human fat from liposuction operations to power his car and his girlfriend's car. It will not surprise you that the surgeon practiced in Beverly Hills.

The oddest part of this is that there is apparently a law that prohibits using medical waste to power cars. Surely ... surely... the great minds in our legislature have more important things to attend to?
