Matt and I are the new proud owners of our very own veggie mobile. This 1981 Mercedes runs on diesel, biodiesel and vegetable oil and with its extra large tank can go 700 miles on one tank. The guy we bought it from hasn't paid for gas in 10 years! He also told us which restaurants around Long Beach we can procure some grease lightning (the smell is pretty potent though...expect major french fry cravings when we come around). We are planning on replacing both of our cars with veg burners and expecting to save around $6000 in gas per year. It makes me so happy to be driving a clean, green machine but it makes me even happier to stick it to the Man! Take that Big Oil!!
