With some adjustments and a local restaurant supplier, a Florida charter boat re-uses vegetable oil.
With the high cost of fuel, the Fort Myers, Florida charter boat run by Captain Ramsey Drummond almost went out of business. But Drummond decided to look into alternative fuel sources, and found a winner with bio-diesel.
With $2,000 equipment changes and cooking oil supplied by a neighborhood restaurant, Captain Drummond is able to stay float and at only $1.39 a gallon. Ahoy mate!
This news caught the eye of Florida Senator Bill Nelson, who was impressed by (energy and financial savings) so much, he wants to offer tax credits to people like Captain Ramsey Drummond, who seek out and use alternative fuel sources.
