Driving on used vegetable oil takes a waste product and turns it into a fuel when the car uses the Greasecar conversion kit.

This restored Mini Clubman does not look 26 years old.

If it wasn't for the signage, you might not notice that this car has both a left and right fuel cap. (All the Tour de Sol entrants have to demonstrate safe handling characteristics, hence this zig-zag-through-the-cones test. You kissed one! But it is still in the circle, so you're OK.)

This Mercedes Diesel uses essentially the same Greascar fuel system as the Mini.
