gross! and illegal!

using fat to fuel cars might be environmentally friendly, but it's definitely illegal in california to use human medical waste to power vehicles, and bittner is being investigated by the state's public health department

story is really about a doc who fled because of unsafe practices

although it's unclear when bittner started and stopped making fat fuel or how he made it, his activities came to light after recent lawsuits filed by patients that allege he allowed his assistant and his girlfriend to perform surgeries without a medical license.

he closed his practice and moved to south america.

I second that - there is being green and there is gross - that's going too far!

Still, it would be nice to have somebody find a legitimate use for all this blubber. I've got enough on me to fill our cars' tanks for a year.........:D
