Mentos and Coke-Powered Rocket Car is Our Kind of Alternative Fuel Vehicle

June 1, 2010

Realizing the propulsive potential caused by the fizzy reaction that occurs when Mentos breath mints are dropped into 2-liter bottles of soda, these scientists decided to see how it would fare as a means of locomotion. The result? The Coke Zero and Mentos Rocket Car!

Employing a delivery system of PCV pipe pushing the mints into the soda bottles in quick succession to push the "car" (let's be honest, it's an oversized tricycle) these intrepid DIYers created the world's first vehicle powered sheerly by fizz!
