Prince Charles Fuels Hybrid Car With Surplus Wine
British Royal PRINCE CHARLES has joined the celebrity craze of 'going green' by powering his car collection on eco-friendly fuels.
The Prince of Wales, who owns a bevy of high-powered vehicles, has turned his 38-year-old Aston Martin into a hybrid, fuelling its engine with surplus English wine.
The royal's other vehicles, including Jaguars, an Audi and Range Rovers, are powered using bio-diesel made from cooking oil.
In an effort to reduce his carbon footprint, the eco-conscious prince has managed to slash his carbon dioxide emissions by 18 per cent.
Charles' chief aide Sir Michael Peat says, "Charles only travelled two or three hundred miles a year in the Aston but he wanted it to be environmentally-friendly. It just happened that our bio-ethanol supplier makes the fuel from surplus English wine."
