Four Loko, the nectar of the gods, is now doing something else besides making people break into houses naked. A lot of the leftover-Loko in Virginia is being turned into gasoline by a company called MXI Environmental Services. Jalopnik reports, “MXI distills the ethyl alcohol in the drinks, then ships it to gasoline blenders. It’s chemically identical to ethanol from corn.” Yeah. We drank that. Anyway, now Al Gore has to shotgun a Four Loko in celebration — it’s the rule of the game.
