Coke Zero and Mentos-powered
car – Click above to watch the video after
the break

You didn’t seriously think that the
whole Diet Coke and Mentos internet meme would die out with nary a whimper, did
you? Of course not! The little bits of candy and sudsy concoction – in this case
Coke Zero in lieu of run-of-the-mill Diet Coke – are back in action as a
replacement for all those pesky fossil fuels.

Sadly, the economics of
scale required to make Coke Zero and Mentos an actual substitute for gasoline
and diesel make the newfound fuel unlikely to gain widespread acceptance. For
what it’s worth, it apparently takes 108 two-liter bottles of Coke Zero along
with 648 Mentos to travel exactly 221 feet.

While you won’t likely be
filling up your own ride with the new wonder fuel, you can still enjoy the
highly carbonated video after
the break
. As for whether you should bother trying this experiment at
home… well, we’ll leave that one up to you. But probably not.
