It can be done. But not in the manner described in the "Lipobelt" literature.

Using thermal depolymerization, a 175-pound man would provide 38 pounds of oil, 7 pounds of gas, and 7 pounds of minerals, as well as 123 pounds of sterilized water.

38 pounds is a little over 5 gallons of oil. So you would have to pick up a new hitch hiker every 120 to 150 miles depending on your miles per person.

When I first read the article on thermal depolymerization I was glad Hitler did not have that technology.
