The Bio Bonatti Project is an attempt to build a “green”, environmentally-friendly and fully expedition prepared Land Rover Defender 110. The vehicle started off as a wrecked NAS Defender 90. It was rebuilt as a Defender 110 using primarily recycled vehicle parts. The petrol drivetrain was replaced with a 300 Tdi which has been modified to use a variety of biofuels including 100% biodiesel and waste vegetable oil.
Pangaea Expeditions drove the truck to and from the show using solely green fuel, supplied by SynDiesel. The fuel was a blend of clean burning synthetically manufactured diesel and soy and canola derived biodiesel.
We’ll upload photos and stories in the days that follow, so stay tuned.
