3. How far can a bio-fuel Mini drive on 1 kg of human fat?

September 30, 2014

man vs mini 5b

Of course, in heavy traffic you are burning up the bio-fuel/fat getting nowhere.

Fuel Consumption (F) can plummet, even for the Mini, from 3.4 kg/ 100 km to 6.8 kg/100 km to 8.8 kg/100km. You may as well get out of the car and walk!!

ENERGY:

In Biodiesel

Consumed walking

In FAT including Human Fat

  5. Who would have guessed Human fat would have precisely the same energy density as diesel?


    • Hello Me, it is an approximation but a close one. Happy motoring. Cheerio Mathspig
