The Yahoo! turbogreasel Chevy pickup rolled out onto the dusty dry lake bed of El Mirage yesterday for its first measured shakeout runs. Driver Tommy Hodges stepped out of his usual blown Camaro and into the alternative fueled entry. The peanut oil powered diesel posted a 98 mph blast with on its second run ever. While no french fries were served, neither were high speed donuts out on the big end of the course. With a solid baseline established the Orange County Customs crew plans on more action along with maybe a few more cylinders next season. "Who knows what peanut oil will do in the future", said Tommy. Even Pop from the other Orange County would have to agree the whole deal was pretty awesome.
