Pastic > Oil & Water Engines (1 Viewer)


Jan 6, 2010
So I just got my new old truck; 92 Ford F350. Going to start with another Veggie oil conversion. But I thikn it may be time to start researching something new. Don't wanna be collecting veggie oil all my life.

What is plastic & rubber made from? Well thats easy, petroleum. So why not reverse it? This machine looks simple enough, why not build one?

I have also been interested in Water Engines, I read A book on the subject, somewhat complicated. I don't imagine I could explain it, but I do have a mild grasp on the subject.

I am totally interested in this stuff. Hitchhiking and freight hopping only does so much to reduce the impact of petroleum drain. The only way to stop the damage is to stop using petroleum. Keep using alternative fuels. You rock!

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
