HIGH GAS PRICES FUEL STUDENTS' BIO-DIESEL AUTOMOTIVE PROJECT
Can you make a pickup truck run using a tractor engine? The South Johnston High School automotive department proved it can run, like a Deere. The students refurbished a 1994 Chevy with a John Deere engine that runs clean and green. Their quest was fueled by high gas prices. "We get 51 miles to the gallon," said South Johnston High School Teacher James Cox.
