Mark Rainford caught the man in the act and began filming,

He posted the video to Facebook with the caption: “What fuel prices”.

Mark He told Cheshire Live: “I filmed it and as I walked past him he was taking all the tops off the bottles first, that’s what made me laugh. He had clearly thought it through.”

    • Cooking oil and bio-diesel are 2 different things.. bio-diesel is made from cooking oil, but it hast to be chemically processed.. The temperature of vegetable oil needs to be around 180 degrees so the viscosity of the oil comes down to the same level as diesel fuel. Running straight vegi oil requires lots of modifications to the fuel system..
