Start with mechanical know-how, throw in practical common sense, a love of the environment and a never-ending search for knowledge. The result? Christine and Scott Gable. No only do they research all aspects of alternative fuel technology, they also review all the latest hybrids and alt fuel vehicles. But what sets them apart from the rest is their hands-on knowledge: They've brewed biodiesel in their basement, traveled 125,000 miles on waste vegetable oil, and powered their home's boiler with a biodiesel blend. Having added a new gas-electric hybrid to their fleet, alt-fueling is all in a day's work.
Scott and Christine have given community presentations and demonstrations on powering vehicles with vegetable oil. They are also the local go-to people for anyone with questions, mechanical dilemmas or an interest in alternative fuels. From owning an automotive repair business to working as a machinist and computer technician, Scott's. fascination with "how things work" has him in a constant state of research--and he's been inventing, building and fixing all things mechanical his whole life (including converting the cars to run on veggie oil).
Christine is a professional writer (www.christinegable.com) with national credits that include Alternative Medicine, Better Nutrition, The Rotarian, FUNWORLD and Green Car Journal, with numerous articles highlighting renewable energy technologies. She is a teacher with Brave Writer Online Writing Services, provides corporate writing for sustainable businesses, and serves on the board of the Susquehanna Sustainable Business Network.
From the day we first met, we've shared a love for cars: From old VWs to cool 1967 Camaros and Firebirds, we've burned our fair share of fossil fuels over the years. We now feel it's imperative to leave the world a better place than we found it, and alt fuels and hybrids are part of the solution. Let us show you how your daily driving decisions can lessen your carbon footprint.
