Fill-'er Up With 1,3,7-Trimethylxanthine

I love the smell of coffee in the morning. It reminds me of car exhaust. At least, it soon will according to the University of Nevada. Coffee will not only wake you up in the morning and get you going, it will also get you where you're going.

Smart guys at U of N have produced biodiesel fuel from used coffee grounds. Coffee is 15% oil, you know.
The researchers estimate that their process could produce about 340 million gallons of bio-diesel from coffee world wide, and that they could make about $8 million in profits just from Starbuck's grounds.
Wow! Who knew that Starbucks could give us gas?!
