I don't like the smell of gasoline on skin either and the taste of it even less. It takes a lot of beer to wash that taste out. But by then I don't care anymore.

Diesel is actually a good skin moisturizer. If only we could get past that nasty little cancer thing with long-term petroleum contact.....

I've been contemplating a diesel cologne (would smell like burnt not liquid fuel) but the GF also suggested something about a ten foot pole when I told her, so it just fizzled

Why has'nt carrameow replied to this post yet? I'm sure he's got a story that would top it. I would'nt be surprised if he drank some diesel to wash down the $46.00 bolt he once swallowed.

Remember it is only the vapours that will combust unless you have high heat and high compression.....

The "POP" tested thread made me think I should maybe bump this sucker up again, for anyone who accidentally swallows some diesel....

Anyone ever tried the "Drink me" test with pure biodiesel? Might make a nice salad dressing!

done that with gas, diesel, and both rubbing alcohol & veegie frying oil I thought was water (hunt club drunk).

Anyhow worst thing is if you drink a cup or so is the squirts.

Michelob is the best piece of mind as a chaser.
