Since 1969

Evelyn’s Drive-In is proud to announce the BIOBUG, a diesel VW Bug powered by clam cakes and their new partnership with Newport Biodiesel.  Evelyn’s Drive-In has been famous for their fried seafood fare since 1969, and now there is a great use for their used oil!  Newport Biodiesel picks up the used fry oil, processes it, and then fills the BIOBUG with biodiesel.  The BIOBUG is driven by Jane Bitto, co-owner of Evelyn’s, and it has been wrapped with advertising from Evelyn’s and Newport Biodiesel, with a special message to consumers saying “BIOBUG powered by clam cakes… what can you do?” With the BIOBUG, Evelyn’s is hoping to get people to think about what steps they can take to reduce their impact and raise their awareness of the planet.

In the last bit of the summer, Evelyn’s will be sponsoring fun social media based promotions surrounding the BIOBUG, with great ways to support a green environment while enjoying Evelyn’s delicious fried fare.  Find us on facebook to learn more!

In 2010, Evelyn’s recycled 27,000 lbs of fry oil.  Biodiesel, the fuel that Newport Biodiesel makes from recycled fry oil can be used in any diesel engine or heating oil furnace without modification says Myles Standish, a managing partner at Newport Biodiesel. Recently, Newport Biodiesel produced its 1,000,000th gallon of Biodiesel, a number that means 200 petroleum trucks did not have to bring traditional fuel into Rhode Island. Newport Biodiesels mission to “Fuel a greener New England” is aided by great partnerships such as the one with Evelyn’s.
