Like Biofuels, Not a Good Idea

Biofuel boondoggles entail governments subsidizing the use of food for fuel, despite rising food prices, a ruinous effect on the environment, and marked energy inefficiency. If you consider this depraved, you won't be surprised at the ad campaign of Swedish bus company Flygbussarna, which is promoting its use of supposedly eco-friendly biofuel by showing children drinking out of gas pumps.

The ad implies that their rapeseed oil-based fuel is so environmentally wholesome, it's safe to drink. I wouldn't try it.

Rape oil has been used as an industrial lubricant for many years. The US military uses it in aircraft gearboxes. In tech school they told us the lube is "a vegetable based oil". They also warned us about guys who hade tried cooking with it and even using it as tanning oil. In all cases such use was fatal.
Rape is also the source of Canola oil. There is no such plant as Canola. The word is an acromym for CANadian Oil Low Acid. (rape is grown mainly in Canada) It is refined to make it suitable for human consumption.
Rape oil that is processed into biodiesel isn't processed in such a way that it is consumable by humans. Considering the credulity and lack of common sense among young people today, the bus companies' ad is probably going to get some people killed.

Some much needed chlorine for the moonbat gene pool.

You couldn't run that ad here in the US.....the nanny-State censors would't allow it on the grounds that American kids are too stupid to know that they can't drink gasoline.

I think it also wouldn't run in the US for another reason; look at the location of the pump handle.
