McDonald's to power Manila's police cars

from CNN Money.com:
Police in Manila are looking to convert their patrol cars to run on a mixture of diesel and used cooking oil from McDonald's (MCD), officials and the company said Tuesday.

With oil prices at crippling highs, the project would convert cars in the Makati financial district to run on a combination of 40 percent diesel and 60 percent cooking oil, said police Senior Superintendent Gilbert Cruz.

Used cooking oil will be donated by Makati outlets of the U.S. fast food giant, said McDonald's franchising manager Buth Salaya.
