Well, this vehicle may look unshapely to many eyes, and undoubtedly it is, however, it’s the most environment friendly car Britain has ever built. Dubbed Womble Truck, this vehicle is simply amazing for it incorporates parts from 21 different cars and can touch the 110mph mark on chip fat and vegetable oil.


Created by the sculptor and environmentalist Buzz Knapp-Fisher, it took over six years to transform the wracked truck into a carbon free transport vehicle. The zero emission car has parts from Morris 1000, Seventies Mini, a Ford, a Reliant Robin, an MG Midget, a Vauxhall Viva and a Volvo 740.



Buzz’s Womble Truck’s creation marks the conversion from a petrol engine to biodiesel one, then he switched to chip fat and vegetable oil. Whereas on the high temperature, Womble starts and runs entirely on chip fat, but on the low temperature it starts on biodiesel before switching over to chip fat.


With inspiration for the name coming from the Children’s TV characters ‘The Wombles’, this eco-friendly vehicle depicts the trend of using electric or biodiesel cars in order to save the environment for the generations to come.


This is a great innovation for preserving the environment and there is no stopping here for Buzz. He’s already bought batteries for his electric car with the money saved from Womble Truck and also aims to pursue more energy projects in the future.
