‘My Aston Martin runs on Wine Left Overs’ says Prince Charles

Prince Charles confirmed to BBC that his classic Aston Martin DB6 Volante had been modified to run on fuel partly made from wine left overs. More specifically, he once more reiterated that the vehicle does not use regular unleaded petrol as per the normal spec of the car but instead on bioethanol produced from supply waste. “I’ve got electric cars now but it’s been so difficult,” he told the BBC. “My old Aston Martin, which I’ve had for 51 years, runs on – can you believe this – surplus English white wine, and whey from the cheese process.”

The royal Prince is known for his efforts that aim to tackle climate change and with such a bold statement he further explains that the car was converted as his personal contribution towards the global reduction of carbon emissions. He takes his efforts further by applying a self-ban on eating meat or fish only twice a week.

Although a recent report by the Decanter.com confirms that such biofuels will be offered to motor racing teams at the 24 Hours Le Mans race next year, campaigners argue that it doesn’t provide a longterm solution to combating the effects of global warming and that a complete switch to electrical alternatives may be a better way to go.
