BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A German inventor has angered animal rights activists with his answer to fighting the soaring cost of fuel -- dead cats.

Christian Koch, 55, from the eastern county of Saxony, told Bild newspaper that his organic diesel fuel -- a homemade blend of garbage, run-over cats and other ingredients -- is a proven alternative to normal consumer diesel.

"I drive my normal diesel-powered car with this mixture," Koch said. "I have gone 170,000 km (106,000 miles) without a problem."

The Web site of Koch's firm, "Alphakat GmbH", says his patented "KDV 500" machine can produce what he calls the "bio-diesel" fuel at about 23 euro cents (30 cents) a liter, which is about one-fifth the price at petrol stations now.

Koch said around 20 dead cats added into the mix could help produce enough fuel to fill up a 50-liter (11 gallon) tank.

But the president of the German Society for the Protection of Animals, Wolfgang Apel, said using dead cats for fuel was illegal.

"There's no danger for cats and dogs in Germany because this practice is outlawed in Germany," Apel told Bild on Wednesday in a story entitled "Can you really make fuel out of cats?"

Well I guess we know what Sarge has been up to during the ban.

Here in the USA we could use Nutria and Possum for fuel.

Hell, they're already dead, might as well put them to good use.

If we find out that dead humans make a good fuel, I'll be the first to sign a "Fuel donor card".

Man... if only we could invent a way to use stupidty as a fuel. We would really have an endless supply, then.

I had to go back and make sure it wasn't linked to "The Onion".

That's just odd. What's even more strange is that there may actually be a law in Germany that states that you cannot use cats as fuel.

The entire story is a fucking LIE! Bild broke it, Mr. Koch, the inventor, told them and other media outlets that it was not true, that in fact he was simply using GARBAGE, but Bild ran a follow-up the next day and CNN picked it up and ran with it. More liberal bilge...probably funded by OPEC.

The dude has patented his invention...a machine that he puts the garbage into and it creates bio-fuel...at a cost of $1.20/gallon.

"I use paper, plastics, textiles, and rubbish," Mr. Koch said. "It's an alternative fuel that is friendly for the environment. BUT it's complete NONSENSE to suggest dead cats. I've never used dead cats and would never think of that. At most, the odd toad may have jumped in." Did'nt matter to Bild...they continue to lie...and the stupid American press, always ready to run with any whacko story, follows along like the libtards they are.

Oh...and for the record, Mr. Koch has driven his normal diesel-powered car for 106,000 miles on his bio-fuel without a problem. Makes you wonder.

But, the question is, would the machine work with a dead cat? That would make it more fun to use, and very marketable in the US.

Need a study on which breed of cat has the best mpg.

Competition between chinese restaurant owners and fuel consumers. Like Granny scooping up roadkill asap.

Better get to the cats in animal shelters before PETA throws them in dumpsters.

They're bio-degradeable aren't they? I'd say "sure, throw them in, and bring fido too!"
