De facto interior ministry: no more cooking oil in Gaza cars

Aug. 8, 2008 11:56 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 8, 2008 11:56 A.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The de facto interior ministry in the Gaza Strip called on drivers to stop using cooking gas as a fuel for engines. The order will take effect on Saturday 9 August.

On siege on Gaza reduced the amount of gas for both machines and cooking, and as a result drivers have increasingly turned to alternative sources for car fuel.

When run in a car the fuel not only damages the engine, reducing the life of the car by nearly half, but produces a thick smell akin to burning tires. Gazans complain about instant nausea when hit with the heavy smoke emitted from cars burning cooking oil.

One woman commented that the smell is a mix of diff kind of bad smells: rotten food, burnt food, and gross things. The amazing thing that it is just oil!"
