Peeing in a 300C

Normally one wouldn't think of peeing in the gas tank of a 300C but now a company called LS9. Is developing genetically altered bugs that will pee crude oil. A representative of the company recently said "He gives it a month before the first vehicle could be a Chrysler 300C is filled up on what they call “renewable petroleum. After that, it’s a brave new world”. The bugs feed on agricultural waste such as woodchips or wheat straw, they excrete, piss, poop crude oil. Thus creating burnable fuel for 300C and others. They say that if LS9 used Brazilian sugar cane as its feedstock, its fuel would probably cost about $50 a barrel. Some how burning poop in a 300C just doesn't sound right. more
