We know gas is very expensive this days, but from here to convert a car on running on wine, well is a pretty long way to go! But when you are a great person, a prince for example, you can afford pretty much everything!

Prince Charles decided to convert his 38-year-old Aston Martin to run on bio-ethanol made from English wine!

Converting the Aston Martin played a small but symbolic role. The Prince’s chief aide Sir Michael Peat said: ’Charles only traveled two or three hundred miles a year in the Aston but he wanted it to be environmentally friendly. It just happened that our bioethanol supplier makes the fuel from surplus English wine.’

The car - which is kept at Highgrove and clocks up just 300 miles a year - averages ten miles a gallon, the equivalent of 4.5 bottles of wine for every mile.
