Living Lounge Refinery is a miniature refinery you install in your own home to cater for all your petrochemical needs.

Made especially for the extra hungry requirements of the multiple car owner. Living Lounge Refinery has many advantages and valuable lessons to impart to its owners. The realities of global warming would quickly become obvious on commissioning the refinery as a noxious cloud quietly begins to obscure the ceiling. Inevitable spillages, the ever present risk of conflagrations and explosions, along with a persistent smell of various petroleum products, could be a bit of a nuisance, however your Living Lounge Refinery outweighs all of these by its numerous benefits. Refining your own petrol is fun, educational and of course cheap. Living Lounge Refinery's perpetually burning flares, and flickering gauges provide a cheery focal point for family evenings, and of course there are numerous products for the hired help to decant, bottle up, and you to sell.

A word of caution - Living Lounge Refinery requires a long term commitment as extra bits will constantly need to be added on, especially more tubing and clumps of valves to control them, along with additional tanks, towers and connecting gantries, because a Lounge Refinery is a project that must grow to survive.

Not to be confused with: Lounge Lizards / Refined Living

       You could keep a hundred small meth/steam engines roaming about the house.

       Thanks - I like that notion - they could be connected directly to a central fuel supply by flexible hoses and operated by remote control to steam roll the carpet, drag the tv around, or bulldoze piles of bread crumbs about.... it's a whole other idea - pick up a bun on the way out.

       Also available, an expansion pack of garden gnomes with angry faces and placards. Arrange mob-fashion on your driveway for that authentic refinery touch.
