Gas master

Now you - yes YOU - can own your very own biodiesel production franchise for a mere $1.95 million. A company called Xenerga, based in Orlando, is offering entrepreneurs this interesting opportunity.

So what does $1.95 million get you? Facility construction and related costs, a supply of waste cooking oil to use as a feedstock (from places like McDonald's and Applebee's, so it'll smell tasty), and a 5-million-gallon-a-year plant with at least one customer already lined up. And no experience necessary.

Xenerga's first plant will open in Orlando next month and the company has plans for 40 more.
