Whisky Fuels Car – Sorta, Kinda


Share on Pinterest

Whisky has many purposes, but for the first time, one of those purposes is as a fuel for a car.

Technically, it is not whisky itself that is fueling this car, it is biobutanol – a residue liquid created from draff or pot ale – the leftover liquid from the barley fermentation process involved in making whisky.

Scientists from Celtic Renewables in association with Edinburgh’s Napier University, created the fuel and ran the car on it for a short drive of undetermined length and time. The fuel is seen as an alternative to gasoline as well as to electric vehicles since it does not require any engine modifications.

Giving the car a whisky drink.
