Urinocar

How about a car that runs on urine?

Does anyone realize how economical this would be? We wouldn't have to buy so much oil from the Middle East, and men could make themselves even more useful by filling the tank :-)

Two thoughs on this:

Don't quit your day job.

Instead of searching the Middle East for oil you simply stand outside a bar on a Saturday night with a five gallon can.

If the info in the follwing url is correct instead of a urinocar one can perhaps have a 'poopmobile'.

The maximum bladder pressure is about 1/15th of an atmosphere. Assuming a volume of about 300 ml and an evacuation time of about 10 secs, the power generated will be less than a watt. Considering the energy losses in a turbine, it may be better to design a pedal powered car than a uroturbine car.
