As petrol prices are skyrocketing again, and our electric car dreams get short-circuited thanks to our “reliable” electricity supply, some people think it’s a bright idea to whip up their own petrol at home. Should DIY fuel be the next big hit, legal and all? Because, obviously, what could go wrong with mixing up a batch of fuel in your backyard? So, with petrol prices making us cry every month, here’s a thought: Should making your own petrol be okay? What about safety? If you’re smart, it’s very possible to create your own petrol, diesel, and even biodiesel. But… Let’s hear it: Are you team “Let’s make our own fuel” or team “Wait, that sounds explosive”? Here’s how you can participate.
