Prince Charles claims he runs his Aston Martin sports car on English wine & cheese

The fuel that powers his Aston Martin DB6 is mainly ethanol, loved by racing car drivers for its performance and can be created using waste food including English wine & cheese

It may sound excessive to turn a bottle of English Sparkling wine into bioethanol, but Prince Charles claimed his Aston Martin runs on E85, a fuel that is made up of 85% bioethanol and 15% normal petrol. The bioethanol can be made from of surplus wine among other waste foods and is also often made from corn in the US.
