    How about this for thinking outside the “(gas) box.” Mini Cooper should develop a TDI version. Make it street-ready for a veggie oil accepting gas tank. Target the usual customer base (18-35 year old socially concious adults) with goal of attracting Prius users (heavy-up marketing in San Fran) because nowadays you want to look stylish, be green and have performance! Really attract vegetarians…yes go niche…because you could build loyalty with this whole community. Marketing campaigns could have a vegetarian theme (finally a “meat-free car,” etc.). Build an app that gives drivers a “map and guide” for getting unused veggie oil from restuarants in their community. Let’s face it…hybrids use electrical energy…running on veggie oil would be the coolest thing on the market and cleaner/greener than anything, besides possibly hydrogen, which has a long time before adoption. Offer a complimentary bike rack upon launch to really build loyalty with the ultimate green, urban influencers.

    Fuel economy of 29/37 mpg in the vehicle is pretty decent with the naturally aspirated engine.

    Wow, these cars look amazing and knowing that these are fuel efficient makes it even better. Such vehicles should really be promoted worldwide so that people will be able to experience its benefits. This will also greatly help in the preservation of natural oils.
