ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - One inventor is taking the concept of alterative fuels to the limits by filling up his car with Mountain Dew.
It's an invention aimed at making the world a cleaner place, and people are having fun with it.
In front of dozen onlookers, inventor Paul Patone showed people what a few drops of the popular soft drink could do in his invention.
It's called the Geet Sytstem. Basically, it's a fuel booster system that can connect to any engine.
Patone said the best part is that the Geet System creates zero pollution.
The engine isn't exactly full of soda pop. Patone said the complex pipe system vaporizes the fuel before it reaches the engine.
"I haven't invented the engine; all I've invented is the fuel delivery system. And this system will fit a gas engine, a diesel engine, a furnace, a boiler, it will fit anything including jet turbines," Patone said.
To make the engine run, some gas or diesel fuel has to be mixed with the soda.
You can download the system's plans for free at the Geet Web Site.
