The Granola Ayatollah of Canola!

The Granola Ayatollah of Canola!

Biodiesel fuel comes from plants like corn or can be reprocessed from used cooking oil.  It’ll run your truck just fine, doesn’t pollute, lubricates the engine better than regular diesel, and freezes at a lower temperature (important for truckers in cold weather).

The Granola Ayatollah of Canola, aka Charris Ford, slides behind the wheel of his 1980 International Scout truck and turns the key. The truck burbles to life and off we go, cruising down the gravel roads that divide the aspen groves of southwestern Colorado’s Horsefly Mesa. It would be just a standard evening joyride, except that Ford’s truck doesn’t run on gasoline. Or diesel. Or electricity, or even the sun. This truck is powered by grease, all of it drained from restaurant deep-fryers in the nearby resort town of Telluride.
