Technology Highlight: Coffee Fueled Car Breaks Records

While it’s true that coffee fuels so many of us on a daily basis, did you know it can also be used to fuel an automobile?    The first successful attempt at running a car on coffee (through a process called gasification) actually happened back in 1988, but the latest incarnation has shattered records with a top speed of 66.5mph thanks to the group at Teesdale Conservation Volunteers.  The car, a rare Rover SD1, looks a little like Doc Brown’s DeLorean if it were made by a crazy person who hangs out in junkyards.
