almost as impressive as water into wine?!

From World, how to turn wine into fuel!...

Britain's Prince Charles recently jumped on the biofuels bandwagon, converting his seldom-used 1960 Aston Martin DB6 to a biofuel system that allows him to run his classic convertible on wine rather than gasoline....The prince gets his wine from an English vintner who would otherwise have to destroy any wine produced above the European Union quota. Charles' switch to a biofuel may curb a smidgen of carbon dioxide emissions, but it likely won't save him much money: The wine costs only slightly less than the gasoline he'd buy for his classic.

Aside from the tech advance, note the quota on wine-- to keep prices higher for sellers and consumers.
