Any diet soda will evaporate faster than the non-diet counterpart because diet sodas don't contain sugars.

The evaporation rate of a solution is affected by the amount of dissolved solids (solutes) in the liquid. Diet soda has a smaller mass of dissolved substances (concentrated artificial sweeteners) than regular cola (sugar or corn syrup).

Diet soda is simply plain carbonated water with color, flavoring and artificial sweetner. The artificial sweetner is so much stronger than natural sugar that much less is used to sweeten the soda.

Where can you find diet squirt?

Squirt is owned by the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. You can find them at . Their number is (800) 696-5891 and they have an automated 24 hour phone service where you tell them what soda you are looking for and give your zip code. If it is within 100 miles of your area, they will give you locations of where to buy it. If you are farther than 100 miles, you have to wait till they are open (I called at 9:00pm and they were closed) and speak to someone. My girlfriend challenged me to find it since she thinks it does not exist and I can't wait to see the look on her face when I give her 5 cases of the stuff! Only problem is I will have to have the stuff shipped to us in Houston :( Hope this helps!

Short answer, no!
The term alcohol sugar or sugar alcohol is a marketing gimmick to make something chemical sounding sound a little more consumer-friendly. The name is derived from the fact that part of their chemical structure resembles sugar and part resembles alcohol. There is, however, nothing in common between the alcohol in alcoholic beverages, which is ethanol and sugar alcohols which are typically sorbitol, lactitol, mannitol, xylitol, isomalt, maltitol and hydrogenated starch hydrolysates (HSH).
