McDonalds go Green

McDonald's is to convert all its UK delivery vehicles to run on biodiesel, using the firm's supply of cooking oil.

The fast-food chain has pledged to convert all its 155 vehicles by next year, starting with 45 lorries based at its distribution centre in Hampshire.

I do hope they don't smell like mobile McDonalds though? At least at the moment you only get the horrible smell when you're near an outlet.

LOL I'm sure you can smell chip fat when cars use biodiesel :-)

Well its a start, maybe they will start serving food that tastes nice next, :: stranger things have happened, what gets me is the fact that they can call their shacks a 'restraunt' :q28:

Good thought though. All their excess cooking oil powering their vans....

Maureen runs on a 50/50 mix of cooking oil and diesel and does smell of chip shop a bit...... icon_redface.gif
