    Kuro5hin has a lengthy post with many comments related to this post.

    A few people have stated that it's an April Fool's joke. This may be true, but I haven't seen anything citing this. It originally appeared in a reputable science magazine. Also the organization behind this has a web site discussing it.

    Other's pointed out that even if it is true, it will slow down movement to other forms of fuel. But oil is used for things other than powering vehicles. And considering the reduction of waste, I still believe this has a place.
