I don’t think you could talk about this with a straight face

A poop powered car.

Yup, it is going to be incredibly hard to talk about this without all kinds of sophomoric jokes about passing wind or how this car is full of shit but I’ll try.

The image at the top of the post… well that is a Volkswagen based vehicle called the Bio-Bug and was created by a British sewage treatment company called Wessex Water. The car is powered by methane biogas that is generated from fermented human waste and is claimed to be able to travel 10,000 miles annually on waste collected from 70 households.

“We have been producing biogas for many years,” employee Mohammed Saddiqtold the Telegraph — “with a straight face,” New York Magazineadds snidely. “With the surplus gas we had available we wanted to put it to good use in a sustainable and efficient way.” In a separate interview with The Sun, Saddiq claimed that these new vehicles could “blow away” the electric car model.

I only have one question.. have you smelled fermenting human waste or even caught a whiff of methane?
