Gas Powering Things that Should NOT be Gas Powered

In this day and age, it feels like the electric wave is sweeping across anything and everything with a combustion-powered engine. From lawnmowers to the cars that we get behind the wheel of every day, if there’s a way to make it rechargeable, the industry is exploring it. However, amidst this electric revolution, there are individuals in the automotive community who are pushing back, advocating for the survival of internal combustion engines.

In a lighthearted take on this tug of war between tradition and innovation, YouTube creator TheBackyardScientist took a seat at the drawing board with a humorous idea. What ensued was not a serious battle but a delightful excursion into the realm of unconventional transformations. Armed with a small nitro RC engine fueled by the same potent concoction found in top fuel dragsters, the DIY scientist embarked on a mission to gasoline-power objects that would conventionally never dream of such an energy source.

The video showcases the ingenious transformation of various items, turning them into gasoline-powered marvels. From a gasoline-powered fan, which adds a whole new meaning to the term “cool breeze,” to a gasoline-powered phone charger and even an Xbox controller, the experiment truly shows us what lengths one can go for the sake of a good laugh. It certainly had us chuckling more than once.

Imagine the inconvenience and annoyance of having to start up a gasoline engine every time you want to charge your phone. It’s a humorous take on the clash between traditional and modern power sources, reminding us that sometimes, innovation can be infused with a generous dose of humor. While these gasoline-powered contraptions are far from practical, they offer a whimsical escape into a world where creativity and laughter collide.

Which one of these nitro powered creations do you find the be the most obnoxious of the bunch?
