Is there anything coffee can't do? It smells awesome, it makes annoying jobs less annoying, and now it can make a Ford F100 pick-up truck go 65 mph, which is a new Guinness World Record. The "Bean Machine," built by UK engineer and conservationist Martin Bacon, is powered by coffee chaff pellets converted into hydrogen and carbon monoxide via gasification. Gasification, incidentally, is far from being a new concept. It was commonly used to power vehicles in England during WWII and was thought to power about 900,000 vehicles worldwide at the beginning of the 20th century, though never at these speeds. [Source]
