Over in the UK, McDonald's announced today that it will start using its own waste cooking oil to make biodiesel, which will be then used in its entire truck fleet of 155 vehicles. McDonald's has 1,200 restaurants in Britain, and Matthew Howe, senior vice president with McDonald's UK, told Reuters that the fast food chain just might be able to sell biodiesel to others because they'll likely have some excess. The biodiesel will be made from 85 percent McDonald's waste grease and 15 pure rapeseed ..

Filler up, and I'll have an order of fries and a coke!

It's the responsible thing to do...

I agree that it will hurt the individual who is currently collecting WVO (that is waste vegetable oil) for their own biodiesel brewing needs, but it makes sense from the corporate angle. Not only does WVO conversion to biodiesel make up front financial sense, it's easy on the environment, and much better for a diesel engine than "dinodiesel."

Two thumbs up and a snap or McDonald's.
