Yes, you heard that right! Scientists have successfully created an almost similar chemical compound to gasoline from genetically modified bacteria.
However in the past, gasoline was obtained from bacteria but it never worked well and the engines clogged up because of the premature gum deposits.
John Love, scientist at the University of Exeter, UK, has created a strain of E. coli bacteria which can make gasoline. John claims that this gasoline is structurally identical to the one found at a gas-pump.
