When an alcoholic beverage like Four LoKo Energy Drink can be turned into fuel for cars, that's probably a small hint as to why it was made illegal in the first place.

The high-octane, high-concentration drink (and many like it from other companies) was red-flagged last November after a tragic string of accidents related to malt beverages of this kind. The Four LoKo energy drinks are now being shipped to ethanol processing plants around the U.S. in huge quantities; even their water content and packaging are being recycled.
