Step aside gasoline, because there's a turbo-charged fuel coming to hit the streets of London, England!

It's no surprise that many urban environments use cafes and coffee beans to ensure their city runs as smoothly as possible, however, this is the first instance of the caffeinated cherries powering the transportation itself.

So what is the science behind taking our precious lattes away from us and using it to turn motors instead of minds?

Well, coffee drinkers rejoice, because the project won't actually be depriving anyone of their morning cup of joe.

Transport for London has been investigating the use of bio-fuels as alternative sources for energy for some time, but now they have stumbled onto a way to repurpose the grounds from the bottom of our mugs.

That's right, they'll be using the waste product to create a new bio-fuel. The company responsible for the new development, "bio-bean," says they have already created enough coffee oil to power a bus for an entire year.

Just how much coffee does it take to do that?
