Alternative fuel: cattle dung?

Scientists at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology said they have found a new source of gasoline -- cattle dung, reports the Los Angeles Times. Researcher Sakae Shibusawa said his team had successfully extracted 0.042 ounce of gasoline from every 3.5 ounces of cow dung. "The new technology will be a boon for livestock breeders" to reduce the burden of disposing of large amounts of waste, Shibusawa said.
