Those fries you ordered are far more valuable than you think… or at least their grease is. Restaurants and police across the country are reporting thefts of grease intended for conversion into biodiesel, and the suspected grease pirates are people who take it for home biodiesel brewing. Biodiesel has gone mainstream, and its value has increased as the cost of conventional diesel fuel has also increased, with places reporting a rise in price from 30 cents a gallon to $1.25 a gallon for waste oil (still a huge bargain compared to conventional fuel, diesel or not). Turns out those little golden spuds might be worth their weight in gold.
