Default Southern Railways Locomotives on Vegetable Oil

Hi all

Just read an interesting article that says that Southern Railways have been successful in their attempt to run locomotives on Used Vegetable Oil sourced from city hotels in Chennai...

So we will soon have Vegetarian Express Trains!

Thumbs up Truely Green (veg) Fuel

Intresting article my friend . lets hope they get a hang of this technique really well and then use it on cars as well . the way fuel prices are rising , we better look some where else .

PS : Wonder if it reduced the speed in any manner .
