Coffee-fuelled car finishes trip

A car fuelled by coffee, dubbed the "car-puccino", was cheered through the streets of a city as it completed a 250-mile journey.
The vehicle powered by nothing but used coffee grounds used the equivalent of more than 11,000 espressos to complete the London to Manchester trip, interrupted by refuelling coffee stops every 60 miles.
The car, based on a 1988 VW Scirocco bought on eBay for £400, was the creation of engineer Jem Stansfield, presenter of the BBC1 show Bang Goes The Theory.
