I have always wondered what fruits are used for other than a food source. As I was searching to fuel my curiosity I came across this article that seamed very fascinating. The article written by Micheal Reilly at MSNBC talks about how watermelons could become the new source of ethanol fuel.

"According to a new study, leftover watermelons from farms' harvests could be converted into up to 2.5 million gallons of clean, renewable ethanol fuel every year destined for your car, truck, or airplane's gas tank."

This would surely be a much more sustainable alternative. Cleaner, better and greener!
