Running a school bus on waste vegetable oil takes a bit of doing. The students are building on work from Big Green Bus trips each of the past three summers. This year's plan was to leave at 11 a.m. on the first day, with a goal to get to Washington D.C. to lobby senators and their staffs at noon the next day.

Not so fast.

First, the team spent an extra few hours in a Stratham, New Hampshire parking lot, where Trey Roy worked on some wiring.

And Bennet Meyers fixed some hoses.

Even a working bus would need a hundred gallons of old grease to get to DC. More on that soon.
