Scientists find bugs that eat waste and excrete petrol - Times Online

To be more precise: the genetic alteration of bugs – very, very small ones – so that when they feed on agricultural waste such as woodchips or wheat straw, they do something extraordinary. They excrete crude oil.

I don't know if this is rehashed old news, or something new. Sounds like more than a pipe dream at this point though.
