The article focuses on Envirocar, a converted common rail diesel Rexton from SsangYong. It operates on a fully automated multi-fuel basis. Envirocar has a number of vehicles already equipped to run on extremely cheap and clean fuel. Such fuel could be soya oil, cooking oil and any form of vegetable oil, as long as it is refined properly and is metered through the engine via a conversion kit which is manufactured in New Zealand. Envirofuel will be priced 69 cents, which is the cheapest form of fuel.
