diet snapple 16 oz $1.29, which come to $10.32 per gallon
lipton ice tea 16 oz $1.19, which come to $9.52 per gallon
gatorade 20 oz $1.59, which come to $10.17 per gallon
ocean spray 16 oz $1.25, which come to $10.00 per gallon
brake fluid 12 oz $3.15, which come to $33.60 per gallon
vick's nyquil 6 oz $8.35, which come to $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85, which come to $123.20 per gallon

Scope 1.5 oz $0.99, which come to $84.48 per gallon

The funny thing is that “evian” spelled backwards is na├»ve

Note to self...Sell all I have, rent a small laboratory, and spend every single waking moment trying to invent an engine that will run on mouthwash....!

Of everything on that list, brake fluid is the only one I use, and I don't know that I've ever had to go purchase brake fluid off the shelf. :)

Of course, maybe we need some alternative fuel for our bodies too, as most of the above stuff isn't good for us.

For a one-time investment you can get a ceramic British Berkefeld water filter (see http://www.2000biz.com/food/berkefeld.htm , for instance, though there might be better prices) that will last for life--we've had it for six years now with the original filters. You can run creek water through this puppy and its drinkable.

That and non-concentrate fruit juices occassionally , are good personal fueling.

As far as vehicle fuel goes, my money's on biodiesel . (See http://biodiesel.org )
