Unsaleable Stockpiles of Banned Four Loko Being Recycled Into Car Fuel

Categories: News, Really?!?!?

Remember how the ban on Four Loko effectively outlawed the booze-filled caffeinated energy drink? Now, some wholesalers are unloading unsold warehouses of the stuff to a company in Virginia. The company will turn it into ethanol and add it to gasoline.

Some choice words from the geniuses behind this after the jump!


According to the Associated Press, wholesalers across the East Coast have started trucking their cases of Four Loko to MXI Environmental Services, one of just three facilities in the United States that recycles ethanol. Brian Potter, the company's president, is obviously excited.

"We're equipped to process four truckloads a day, and we're at full capacity," he said. "There are about 30 different products involved, and we've only seen a couple of them at this point. It could go on for several months."

The article points out that just one truckload of Four Loko amounts to 2,000 cases of the drink. Figure each case carries six cans, and that's about 48,000 Four Lokos recycled daily. Isn't that so much better than the booze getting recycled in the digestive and urinary tracts of co-eds?

Well lets see, it's so much safer for me to mix vodka and monster together, in proportions that may or may not kill me. Duh.

I've found that monster energy drink goes with gin very well at a 1:1 ratio. Spread the word.

Actually, a case of Four Loko contains 12 cans.

"Isn't that so much better than the booze getting recycled in the digestive and urinary tracts of co-eds?"

Ummm... no. What would have been better is tackling the issue of binge drinking, instead of a ridiculous ban on a product you can reproduce with any energy drink and a bottle of vodka. The amount of resources and energy used to produce, transport then 'recycle' this stuff cannot possibly be recouped with a little ethanol. I agree it's good it isn't get thrown in a landfill somewhere, but the whole situation is stupid.
