Give My Car A Beer

All right! A car that runs on beer!

Ohio's only ethanol plant will not use corn to make fuel. A group of Ohio investors want to use raw materials such as flat beer and stale soda that normally would be poured down the drain or sent to the landfill.

Liquid Resources of Ohio plans to "deconstruct" the beverages containing corn syrup or alcohol to make ethanol.

The plant is slated to open by the end of the year.
