Agreed, not a well thought out promotional idea.

I saw these people on Cool Fuels I believe......They have the capabilities of turning just about any fat into fuel! I remember on the show he mentioned Yes even human fat tissue, and then stated anyone who wanted to donate to contact him....:)
I think its a cool concept, Not the human fat, but imagine all the Animal by product fats that get wasted that could ultimately be used as fuel. Not exactly PETA Friendly but it works!
