Jeddah Saudi Arabia: The world's top automotive engineers and scientists met in this Red Sea port city to address the automotive fuel cost crisis.
At the invitation of the Saudi Arabian Government, university academics and working automobile company engineers from the USA, UK, France Germany, Japan and Saudi Arabia traveled to Jeddah. An inexpensive fuel was needed that could be produced from each individual county's natural resources.
The researchers spent a month discussing, evaluating and experimenting with various fuels and additives. The mixtures were than tested in a modern automobile modified for each fuel.
The USA's mixture of Kentucky Bourbon whiskey and Tennessee corn liquor was intoxicating; the UK's tea and warm beer mixture fizzled; France's Champagne (Piper Heidsieck vintage 1889) cocktail made the machine titillate; Germany's beer, schnapps and bratwurst mixture clogged the fuel injection system; Japans Sake and Hydrogen mixture exploded; and Saudi Arabia's fuel made the automobile run, purring like a kitten. All the scientists asked the same question of the Saudi representative, what did you use? The reply, "gasoline you fools."
