Refreshing alternative energy

Some people are coffee addicts. My vice is diet soda. This morning, I'm slurping a few cans of Tab, but usually I'm polishing off a bottle of my beloved Coke Zero.
Now, I can think of few things more tragic than seeing a 2 liter bottle of Coke Zero being sprayed all over the ground, but the guys who popularized the Diet Coke/Mentos reaction have upstaged their old act. They used 108 2-liter Coke Zero bottles and 648 Mentos to push a "car" about 220 feet -- only about 6 of which is actual thrust from the Coke and Mentos.
