The green bus "The Chipper" takes the UK streets on these days. This single-decker bus runs on waste cooking oil from chip shops. "It is considered better for the environment than conventional diesel."
The "green" vehicle, a 1998 Dennis Dart vehicle converted for the scheme, is beginning a six-month trial in Bristol to see whether its performance can match that of conventional coaches. As well as being a near carbon-neutral fuel source, bio diesel made from waste cooking oil can produce less carbon monoxide when it is burnt.

The bus is powered by bio-diesel from waste cooking oil sourced from several local restaurants. The operator has also appealed to passengers to "chip in" by donating their own waste cooking oil to local recycling centres.

It is considered better for the environment than conventional diesel. As part of a climate change strategy First UK Bus aims to reduce its carbon emissions by 25 percent by 2020. Source
