The Russian men of Garage 54 tried it out, and put the result on YouTube. They gave a bottle of Coca-Cola in the fuel tank and drove around to see how far the car would come. That was exactly 1,7 km well. Then started the engine of the Lada, against to surge.
Then wanted the car no longer start, not even after it was waterskiing by another car. As expected, the oil filter of the Lada infused with Coca-Cola, as well as the carburetor. In the video they try to give a rusty Lada weather is going to get the fuel system drained and the oil filter to be replaced.
