Canadian Man Ticketed For Driving BBQ Tank-Powered CarS

Cars powered by propane aren't exactly rare, a number of manufacturers offer such flex-fuel vehicles. What you don't see a lot of these days is the homemade variety. Thursday, Sarnia police spotted a 53-year-old man driving a car with a protruding hood, which appeared to be blocking the driver's view. Upon closer inspection they found a propane tank from a barbecue pit tied down to the hot engine block in an effort to "cut down on fuel costs." Our hats off to anyone who cares about the environment so much they'll put a tank of combustible gas on top of an engine and drive around with an obstructed view.
