"Watermelons are not just a favorite summer treat, - according to new research by the US Department of Agriculture, they may soon fuel our cars. Research reveals that watermelon juice has a relatively high concentration of directly fermentable sugars, which may be a valuable source for biofuel due to the ease with which they can be fermented into ethanol. But don’t worry about your favorite corn field being plowed under to make way for a new cash crop - researchers say there are enough wasted watermelons out there to use as biofuel feedstock."http://www.inhabitat.com/2009/08/27/wat ... -your-car/
