Getting to the Race in Style

If you've been to any races this season, you've probably taken notice of Alex Rosenast's Volkswagen Jetta. What you might not know is the team car runs off recycled veggie oil.

The 2005 Jetta TDI wagon was converted by Chris Goodwin at to run off of waste vegetable oil (WVO). Garage Billiards uses 100% canola oil for those tasty fries and other menu items, perfect for fueling the converted Jetta. After its initial use, the oil is rendered, filtered, and used to get the team to the races.

Keep an eye out for the Jetta at races this summer.
