Oh my God, I've been eating "Sugar Fries"! Learned something today, he he...MrOnions said:anyone ever make carmel candy? ...or heat up sugar too much in a pan?
if sugar is in your tank, when the sugar-gas hits the cylinders and heats up, it crystalizes and hardens (or at the very least, becomes gummy). This pretty much clogs everything in the engine from the combustion chambers on out; neccessitating a rebuild! (and you need to find a mechanic who has time to clean hardened sugar (consistency of hard candy) off of pretty much every part in the engine).
on an unrelated note, "mcdonalds coats thier fries in sugar to get that "golden brown" look when they're fried". now you know =)
you can get a gas cover with a key at meijers or any auto storeHurleysurf24 said:while in pembroke lakes mall last week i was looking at the new dakota quad cab (no.. i absolutely have nointerest in buying one) and checking out some of the features it had. what suprised me was the i popped open the gas door, and there was a keyed entry to open up the gas nozzle. how clever.
anyone know where to get this ? or even if it exists ? this would give us a nice piece of mind about people mesing around with our tanks
