CHECK IT OUT! "Greasy Rider"-by Greg Melville, Two dudes one fry-oil -powered car, and a cross country search for a greener future

Among the new books at the San Antonio Public Library is "Greasy Rider"-by Greg Melville. Published in 2008, this is a road trip memoir of Greg and his buddy's adventures and misadventures as they travel across America in a worn out 1985 Mercedes converted to run on vegetable oil. Instead of taking their oil with them in a tank trailer, they set off with the goal of collecting oil from restaurants (and restaurant dumpsters) along the way.

In a fun, self-depreciating way Gregg describes what lead him to his long drive and explains what he learned about alternative fuel.

You can reserve this book online for free at the San Antonio Library website. By checking out these sorts of books we can encourage them to add similar titles to the library collection, and we can all save money for other things like workshops and energy efficient upgrades.
