Poop-powered bus breaks world speed record

The UK’s poop-powered bus has set a speed record for a regular service bus with a top speed of 76.8 miles per hour (123.5kph). The vehicle is called the ‘Bus Hound’ (a tongue-in-cheek homage to supersonic Bloodhound SSC ) and it’s powered by biomethane derived from cow manure . Operated by Reading Buses, the Bus Hound is decorated with a black and white skin reminiscent of the Friesian cows used for milk production around Britain, and it’s said to sound like a Vulcan bomber.
