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.
In hearings before the US District Court of Appeals and in subsequent court filings, (Pauline) Bauer has argued with the judge, said she wasn’t a person but was a vessel of God, that the charges against her are invalid because there was no victim, that the certification of votes — which was interrupted by the rioters breaking into the Capitol — wasn’t an “official proceeding” and that she is immune from prosecution because she isn’t a citizen.
She also argued that she didn’t know she was trespassing when she entered the Capitol on January 6, that she was exercising her First Amendment rights, that she didn’t violently enter but was entrapped by police and she alleged the entire case should be dismissed for inconsistencies in the prosecutor’s case. At one point, she demanded compensation at a rate of $1 a minute for being subjected to false charges and arrest against her soul.
Note - Video from a police officer’s body camera captured Bauer saying to bring out (Nancy) Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the House: “Bring them out now. They’re criminals. They need to hang,” she said.

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.
