The only project that I know of is a guy who goes by the name of Frotter, who uses a 4-cyl diesel engine powered by LARD (aka solid fat, I think he actually uses veggie fat rather than genuine lard). His setup is a mixture of wind, diesel and solar power; there's a gigantic thread on it here: http://www.navitron.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1319.0

Cheers!
