Now that BP is filling the Gulf of Mexico with oil—as if it wasn’t full enough when it was just plain ole saltwater—everyone including President Obama is pushing alternative fuels. While Tesla Motors bought the Nummi factory in Fremont, California, to turn out their high end electric cars, what about us little guys? Luckily Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz of Maine, the guys who are making a living out of Diet Coke and Mentos geysers, are looking out for us. They’ve invented a Coke Zero and Mentos-powered car. There’s a teaser video at their site with promise of a full demonstration video—in 3-D no less!—on June 1st. It’s perfect. Forget gas! Forget plugging your car in! If you’re running out of power just pull into Safeway and buy some Mentos and Coke Zero.
