    Inventor fuels car with dead cats

    Wednesday, September 14, 2005; Posted: 10:28 p.m. EDT (02:28 GMT)



    BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A German inventor has angered animal rights activists with his answer to fighting the soaring cost of fuel -- dead cats.

    Christian Koch, 55, from the eastern county of Saxony, told Bild newspaper that his organic diesel fuel -- a homemade blend of garbage, run-over cats and other ingredients -- is a proven alternative to normal consumer diesel.

    "I drive my normal diesel-powered car with this mixture," Koch said. "I have gone 170,000 km (106,000 miles) without a problem."

    The Web site of Koch's firm, "Alphakat GmbH", says his patented "KDV 500" machine can produce what he calls the "bio-diesel" fuel at about 23 euro cents (30 cents) a liter, which is about one-fifth the price at petrol stations now.

    Koch said around 20 dead cats added into the mix could help produce enough fuel to fill up a 50-liter (11 gallon) tank.

    But the president of the German Society for the Protection of Animals, Wolfgang Apel, said using dead cats for fuel was illegal.

    "There's no danger for cats and dogs in Germany because this practice is outlawed in Germany," Apel told Bild on Wednesday in a story entitled "Can you really make fuel out of cats?"

    "We're going to keep an eye on this case," Apel said.

    That is funny. We have several cats that run around our neighborhood and shit in people's landscaping. We have a neighbor who has like 6 of them. Anyway, one of my neighbors caught a couple of the cats, took them out about 10 miles away and let em go.

    He's still trying to get the rest of them.

      My dad used to do the same thing when I was a kid. I now work with a woman who lives out in the country. She said people do that all the time and it pisses them off because they occasionally have strange cats coming up to their house.

              I live in the country and have several strays that like to get on my car and leave little paw prints. I've been close to blasting them with my .12 guage. So if I kill one am I just supposed to put it in my blender and then dump the "liquid" in my gas tank? Sounds easy enough.
