With the news that TLCB’s home nation is to ban the sale of new diesel and petrol powered cars by 2040, following France, Norway and others, the writing is on the wall for petrol companies.

Which makes this six-wheeled Octan, er… whatever this is by Flickr’s BobDeQuatre even more perplexing that it otherwise would be. Are Octan still selling fossil fuels in the distant future? And how can an internal combustion engine even work in an environment without oxygen?
