Prince Charles Converts His Aston Martin To Run On Cheap Wine

How is Prince Charles planning on getting to his new Eco-Bed and Breakfast? Well, if he’s got some spare cases of wine lying around, he could simply fire up his newly-converted Aston Martin DB6 and toast his way there!

The vintage vehicle has been hacked to run on 100 per cent bioethanol fuel distilled from surplus British wine. The only problem is, it still only gets about ten miles per gallon, or roughly 4.5 bottles of wine per mile. But while it’s only slightly cheaper than pertrol, it outputs 85% less carbon dioxide — something the Prince is attempting to cut from his personal life by 25% by 2018. From the article,

“The grapes used for Charles’s fuel have already been fermented into wine on an English vineyard near Swindon, Wiltshire. Its owners bottle all they can, but cannot produce more than their EU quota. Rather than destroy the excess, the vineyard now sells it to the Gloucestershire biofuels supplier Green Fuels, where it is distilled.”
