Man Uses Mountain Dew Soda For Gas

August 3rd, 2009 by

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – A man in Albuquerque, N.M. said he uses Mountain Dew soda as an alternative way to gas up cars, tractors and lawn mowers.

Paul Patone has invented the Geet System, a fuel booster system that he said can connect to any engine. He said it vaporizes the soda additive before it actually reaches the engine.

“You need to have about 20, 25 percent hydrocarbon. Then you can add the Mountain Dew to it or whatever you want to add,” he said. In front of a group of people he put a few drops of Mountain Dew soda in the invention and it bubbled up. Patone said the fuel booster system creates no pollution.

“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.
