World`s only `coffee-fueled` vehicle sets Guinness speed record
London: A truck in the United Kingdom has been touted as the only vehicle in the world using coffee chaff pellets as fuel, and has also set a speed record in the Guinness World Records to go more than 65 metres per hour (mph).
The specially modified Ford P100 pick-up truck is owned by an English conservationist Martin Bacon and is commissioned by a food brand, The Co-operative Food.
The truck had achieved the speed record at the Woodford Aerodrome in Cheshire, England.
According to Bacon, who designed the vehicle, the coffee pellets, produced from coffee production waste, are heated in a charcoal fire at the back of the truck, which then break into carbon monoxide and hydrogen.
Bacon added that the gas is then cooled and filtered before hydrogen is combusted to drive the engine, which has been specially converted to use the gas as fuel.
The speed is the fastest ever for this type of vehicle, the paper added.
