Carpuccino: car that runs on coffee

While checking some rv for sale online, I saw an article about a car that runs on coffee.

A coffee-powered car, nicknamed “car-puccino,” is going on a 260-mile road trip today. hat used to be a regular ‘88 Volkswagen Scirocco has been highly modified (you don’t say) for it to run off of coffee grounds. Of course, mileage is worse than a ummer since you will need up to 56 espressos in order to move the vehicle a mere mile. Economics-wise, this translates to it being 50 times more expensive than using regular gas, but it will definitely keep coffee growers happy, eh? A classic case of doing it because they can, and practicality is thrown out of the window.
