    Euros, someone has GOT to know this guy!!

    Banned From the Road!!
    A DRIVER was banned from the roads yesterday — for filling his brake pipes with COOKING OIL.

    Tight-fisted David Williams, 25, already had a conviction for using a rolled-up CARPET as a bumper on his rust-bucket Rover.

    Horrified cops who stopped him for having a broken tail light also found he had no brakes, a bald tyre, no rear-view mirror and two broken door handles, Swansea Crown Court heard.

    The jobless chef said he slowed down using his gears and handbrake.

    Tests on the 30-year-old motor showed the brake fluid reservoir was full of gloopy vegetable oil.

    Williams, of Borth, Mid Wales, was given a six-month suspended jail sentence after he admitted dangerous driving. He was banned for a year and ordered to re-take his driving test.

    Judge Nicholas Jones ordered the “death-trap” car be confiscated.

    Williams’ lawyer Craig Jones said his “immature” client would be getting the bus in future.
    Come on, one of you has to know this guy

    Not a clue who the guy is... but interesting story -- never heard that one before. This actually reminds me of a story aired on Discovery Channel:

    A fraudulent company called NOPEC Industries (now out), used Cooking oil and grease as an alternative fuel to sell to his victim customers for high prices.
