Using Car Gasoline For Cleaning?
« on: Sat, 12 June 2021, 06:41:18 »
I’ve always bought purpose made cleaning/washing gasoline (Waschbenzin) for cleaning and degreasing mechanical parts and machinery (mostly clocks, watches, and typewriters/adding machines). To be honest I don’t even know what the stuff is called in English.

Is there any difference in the gasoline used in cars, and the purpose made cleaning gasoline? Are there any additives in car gasoline? Is it less clean? I couldn't find anything about it.

For use in cleaning applications, it is very important that the gasoline evaporates quickly and without leaving any residue. Does car gasoline have these properties?


I know there are people here who know much more about cars then I do (nothing), so please chime in and let me know of you have any idea.

I am no chemist (where are you, Chyrosan?) but I do know that in the US fuel has multiple additives for cleaning and lubrication as it passes through the engine.
Catherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of Americans United for Life, explains that these abortions become “bodies that are thrown away in medical waste bins,” and then she reveals something that no one in Washington, DC knew: Washington’s electrical grid is partially dependent on abortions. What, you say? Here’s Foster to explain that fetuses, “in places like Washington, DC, are burned to power the lights of the city’s homes and streets.”

Drinking, cleaning, powering motors, repelling small children. There's nothing gasoline can't do!

You can clean parts etc with regular gasoline but it is not smart or safe because the flashpoint is extremely low. If you are going to use gas to clean please don't smoke your cigarette while doing so.
