Company Uses Bacon Grease To Fuel Motorcycle

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices may be on the rise, but this biker doesn't need gas to fill his tank.

One of America's favorite breakfast meats is being used to fuel a motorcycle made by food company Hormel.

The new-aged fuel is made from bacon grease, which comes from Hormel's Illinois food plant. The grease is taken to Wisconsin where it's turned into bio fuel.

The average tank of bacon grease fuel runs at about three fifty a gallon but the bike gets 75 to a 100 miles to the gallon.

“The whole goal was to really find people that are to the core about something, we're obviously bacon to the core, but finding people that have a passion or have something they really believe in," said Scott Schraufnagel of BBDO Minneapolis.

The bacon-fueled bike recently set out on its first trip traveling all the way from Austin, Minn., to San Diego.
