World’s first bacon powered motorcycle
Driven By Bacon, this documentary is about a diesel motorcycle that runs on bacon grease fuel. Austin-based Hormel makes a bacon grease powered motorcycle. Hormel came up with the idea of powering a motorcycle dubbed Hormel Black Label Bacon Motorcycle that runs on B-100 bio-diesel which is converted from bacon waste into bio-diesel by bio-Blend Fuels in Wisconsin. The bike fuel costs just $3.50 a gallon and makes the motorcycle run 75-100 miles per gallon. According to Nick Schweitzer, Hormel brand manager, the bacon bio-fuel does leave behind the smell of bacon when one drives it on the roads which all goes well for bacon lovers. Hormel is also looking for a bacon lover who’ll ride the bike on a cross country trip from Austin, MN to San Diego, CA.
