Energy drink for cars
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - January 7, 2011 -- Truckloads of Four Loko are heading to Virginia.
The high-energy, high-alcohol drink isn't going into stores, but gas tanks.
Four Loko and similar drinks were pulled off the market, after federal health officials warned users could become "wide-awake drunk."
East Coast wholesalers are sending cases of their drinks to MXI Environmental Services in Virginia.
The company will recycle the drinks into ethanol, which will be mixed with gasoline.
The cans will be recycled, too.
