In the rear of the Rover, a gasification thingamajig heats coffee grounds to about 1292ºF. At this temperature, the grounds produce something called syngas, which consists of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and methane. This mixture is piped into the engine where it’s used to power the vehicle normally.
