Is That Thing Diesel? book. In theory, Carter is riding Betty the Bio-fuel Bike around Australia to test its viability as an alternative form of transport. It soon becomes clear that Carter has zero knowledge of and interest in alternative energy issues and he certainly does absolutely nothing off his own bat during the circumnavigation or in the book to promote the concepts.

The book is written in true easy flowing Paul Carter style but like his journey started out strong with good detail, yarns about characters along the way, meeting old friends et. His bike so unique and an adventure in itself.

The book is written in true easy flowing Paul Carter style but like his journey started out strong with good detail, yarns about characters along the way, meeting old friends etc. But the last third went way too quickly possibly a reflection that it was a real struggle to finish the trip and that the stuffing had (literally) been knocked out of hi. My advantage has been that he made me relive my adventures from those bigone days, including being joined by a dozen so called bikeys who turned out to be just ordinary folk. Any one considering purchasine this work might be well advised to get the audio version read by Paul himself.

One Man, One Bike and the First Lap Around Australia on Used Cooking Oil. Yes, that's right, he'd want to be the first guy to ride around Australia on an underpowered experimental motorcycle that runs on used cooking oil, wouldn't he? He embarks on a rollicking, often unhinged, and downright dangerous quest that starts on an environmentally friendly motorcycle built on a shoestring budget by students, and ends with a plan to break the motorcycle land speed record for biofuel. Lovely irony-the ride is sponsored by oil companies. Carter is back to his old balls-to-the-wall style of writing, so readers should prepare to laugh out loud.

The author describes his jaunt around Australia driving an experimental motorcycle that runs on vegetable oil.

The book is written in true easy flowing Paul Carter style but like his journey started out strong with good detail, yarns about characters along the way, meeting old friends etc. But the last third went way too quickly possibly a reflection that it was a real struggle to finish the trip and that the stuffing had (literally) been knocked out of him. Having said that I still enjoyed his book as I have enjoyed his others but couldnt help but wondering if a little more could have been written on the Darwin to Adelaide run.

The description of his adventurous ride is so real. I have ridden much of the territory Paul describes but 40 years ago when the roads were more indifferent. His bike so unique and an adventure in itself. My advantage has been that he made me relive my adventures from those bigone days, including being joined by a dozen so called bikeys who turned out to be just ordinary folk.

Deorro
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Like the down to earth, honest style.
Hǻrley Quinn
A good adventure story not as funny as some of his other books but a good light read afternoon well spent
Mojar
I thought it was more like someone's personal dairy, interspersed with lots of expletives. I have read a few motorcycle travel books, and this was by far the worst.

I would not read another of his books.

I preferred the earlier autobiographical stuff. Just as many close passes by the grim reaper but it felt very thin and uninteresting all the same.
Great read, very funny.
