Hybrid cars

If you are feeling the pinch, I suggest saving petrol by taking advantage of hamster power.

Harness the natural zest, enthusiasm and love of life of hamsters by placing them inside your car tyres. This will take advantage of the 'hamster wheel effect' and add a natural, renewable source of power to your car.

Note that food for the hamsters would need to be fed through the air valve.

And what would you feed the hamsters through the air valves? Air? I don't think you've thought this through.

They would need to be hybrid valves, Dan. Tsk.

it would be easier to liquefy the hamsters and inject them into the engine system - not unlike adding nitrous oxide.

of course, sales of hamsters would have to be licensed to avoid excessively powered cars.

(skinning the hamsters before liquefaction would mean that hamster-driving gloves could also be manufactured - for extra grip on the steering wheel....)
