Ever since my scooter was stolen I've had "new car fever". I guess the PC thing to do is go for a Prius but, tbh, I'm interested in more than operational fuel efficiency — I'm the kind of guy that gets excited about the recycled content of seat fabric. So VW piqued my interest today. According to Automotive Design and Production the new cylinder heads of Volkswagen VR6 3.2-liter and 3.6-liter FSI engines are produced with recycled carpet: 75% over-produced fibers and 25% waste fibers, making them stronger and less expensive than conventional materials of the past. If this revs your engine learn about more innovative ways carpet is being recycled here. Thanks to our new "Dr. Tryk" for the heads up.
