Fifth Gear - Veggie Oil Speed Challenge

I was watching Fifth Gear last night and this guy was dumping straight out of the dumpster WVO into his benz with no modifications. He then drove the car from coast to coast (of England) on it filling up on the way at restaurants. I wanted to share that video but I can't find it I think it was in Season 10 Episode 3. But here is his following clip.

Apparently finally he has realized that he needs to filter it or he is going to gum up everything. Now he wanted to see how fast he can go:

somewhere on tv i watched a guy who put a jet engine into an S10 pickup. I think he was in vegas or LA or something...but he ran his jet engine on wvo......i think he could set some speed records with that setup.

In all these shows the british hosts do not seem very intelligent, I think they would be completely blown away by the things normal people do here in the states since we don't have strict laws, we have lots of land, and everything is much cheaper.

But the British hosts are kind of fun cause they don't mince words and they don't have Standards and Practices to deal with. We gasp when a TV host says "****" (just watch that episode of South Park), but over there it's nothing for them to say a car is uglier than shriveled purple pig's scrotum.
