Scott and Christine Gable are former writers for ThoughtCo, contributing articles on automobile hybrids and alternative fuels. 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. Together, they 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 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.
