    Inventor turns dead cats into diesel<br>
    <br>
    A German inventor says he's found a way to make cheap diesel fuel out of dead cats.<br>
    <br>
    Dr Christian Koch, 55, from Kleinhartmannsdorf, said his method uses old tyres, weeds and animal cadavers.<br>
    <br>
    They are heated up to 300 Celsius to filter out hydrocarbon which is then turned into diesel by a catalytic converter.<br>
    <br>
    He said the resulting "high quality bio-diesel" costs just 15 pence per litre.<br>
    <br>
    Koch said the cadaver of a fully grown cat can produce 2.5 litres of fuel - meaning around 20 cats are needed for a full tank.<br>
    <br>
    He said: "I tank my car with my own diesel mixture and have driven it for 105,000 miles without any problems."<br>
    <br>
    Annelise Krauss of the Dresden Animal Protection Association blasted Koch's new diesel though, saying: "This is as bad as experimenting on animals."<br>

    At least we have solved the mystery of why God gave us house cats.
