Is it possible to use liposuction to fuel cars?

Yes it is, but it’s also illegal.

A Beverly Hills physician uses the “waste” from liposuction for gas. He claims that “the vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel–and I have more fat than I can use.”

Although the environmental intent was good, the state public health board was not so agreeable, and is investigating the doctor.

    Did he watch “Fight Club” one too many times?

    But don’t they want us to “go green”?

    [Yeah, I know. Fat's yellow.]

    The fat donors should get a discount on the doctor’s fee since he saves on gas money.

    Not just green, but Soylent Green.

    I thought about the association with “Fight Club,” too. See Plastic surgeon turns to liposuction fuel; gets good mileage per gallon of love handles at the OSHA Healthcare Advisor for a discussion on how this potentially affects medical practices.
