SVO Car with Fuel Tank Deep-Fryer

Vegetable oil tank in a converted diesel car doubles as a fryer

Cars converted to run off of straight vegetable oil use a separate heated tank that makes the oil the same viscosity as regular diesel. If you used high-grade cooking oil without any additives, and if you use the same heating elements to heat the oil to around 300 degrees Farenheit, you could use the fuel tank as a deep fat fryer.

This would be great for cookouts, camping, and tailgate parties. Just pop the trunk, crank up the heat, and dunk in your favorite food for frying. Lard and shortening for doughnuts, peanut oil for chicken, and sesame oil for Asian food.

When you're done cooking, just filter the oil and drive away.

       This similar to the fresh water dispenser in hydrogen vehicles?

       Mmmm. Fondue bourguignonne. Will a car run on white truffle oil?

       Only for as long as you can afford to fill it.

       Actually, what this would be perfect for is a mobile catering van.
