Someone noticed that coffee grounds are about 15% oils. Now they are building a test facility.
I use and talk about, but don't sell Amsoil.

Good plan, a good amount of the bulk of our organics waste container ends up being coffee grounds. I dunno if it's as worth collecting from homes as it is from like starbucks, but seems like a good source.
I wouldn't be surprised if after processing and drying, the grounds could be used in a large industrial diesel like coal dust is. It'd probably help run the oil presses at least.
I wonder if actually the oils are necessary in the product before consumption. I'd heard somewhere that it's the oils that make the coffee taste bitter if you steep it too long. So if oils could be collected out of the coffee first that might be a good thing.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
http://caferacercrew.com/ this truck runs on used coffee grounds. It will probably take more energy to get the oil out of the coffee than you get from the oil. this truck uses old grounds as they are.
I have just attached a wood gasifier to my truck and run it with my construction scraps. there are many more options out there than people think.
