    Need to ask 4 help. I have a motorhome with not much gas in it and it has been sitting for 4 years I wondered if the gas in the motorhome would turn to Varnish I did put gas extender in there at one point but I didn't think I had much gas in there to begin with what is the best additive to get the gas flushed out or use it up and possibly put in fresh gas and let the car not engine get damaged can you help me with this you seem very intelligent about cars and I like your experiment

      most likely the gas is still good, as long as gas is stored properly or in a gas tank it should be use-able... that being said, i'd probably put new gas into the motor home and start up the engine and let it run.. Also adding in some Marvel Mystery Oil to the gas would be helpful too..

    Sticky lifters and crud in the system. Drain, new filter, refill with a gallon of diesel. Start, let run for 1 min, off, repeat, off, repeat at least ten times. Drain, new filer, refill with cheap oil, run for five mins, drain, new filter and decent oil.

    I think it's either Porche or Mercedes that the mechanics use a quart of ATF, maybe it was ATF+4, (not the stuff that smells like gear oil) on a full talk, doesn't mess with the catalytic converter. Then after the tank is empty, do an oil change (because of the vapors have being sucked back in through the PCV valve). At least that's what I remember, haven't tried it in any other car.

    Brake fluid does burn. DOT3, DOT4, and DOT5 all burn, and all about the same. It's not an explosive fast burn like gasoline, but a slower burn like vegetable oil, or a bit faster than candle wax.

    Should have mixed gas with brake fluid in glass before trying in gas tank! I drive an 2008 impala ($2000) but it’s all I have and can’t afford another car! If I would have had a second car things would have been different! One thing about brake fluid is that it absorbs humidity! viscosity is another factor- not sure about clogging ( never seen a clogged brake line 15-20 year old cars ) but injectors have to properly spray fuel ! I would like to say more but I sent a tip about 18 wheel driving in high wind to a trailer manufacturer and the next day a truck was driving AT NIGHT at 40km/h on the highway outside a metropolitan area when there was NO wind ( my idea was separate air break lines that would tilt the trailer in high wind and truck could advance at a SAFE speed ) - I’ll say it anyway - should check how break fluid ignites, emissions, deposits on spark plugs, and this should be done in a not necessarily controlled environment but at least somewhere safe...

    Don't ever put bar stop in your fuel tank! I am speaking of the radiator repair fluid that'll stop a leak on your radiator. I was police officer in a small Central Texas town and we arrested a bunch of kids who thought they were Tony Montana and we're selling a bunch of dope so 2 seek their vengeance they poured bar stop in 3 pro car fuel tanks. It was all money until we receive the call a toddler choking on a peppermint at Christmas time. we managed to finally get there and through the Heimlich and CPR save the young child's life. It did approximately $2,500 worth of damage to each patrol car and destroyed the fuel pump fuel filter and the fuel injectors. I think they're all out of prison now.

    It's really no difference than pouring motor oil into the tank..the gas thins it down at least 40 to one, just like if your piston rings we're shot, and your car was burning oil..not the best performance, but it's still going to run for the foreseeable future.
    Hydraulic oil is all brake fluid is, it's just a thinner version of it..but still a petroleum based product..so it will just thin out and burn when mixed with gas. No big mystery.

    My 67 Sunbeam had a small hole in the vacuum assist break booster that allowed break fluid to be pulled into the intake manifold. At stop lights the engine would suck in enough fluid to cause heavy engine sputter and when I revved the engine to keep it running, it created a huge cloud of clinging smoke that was impossible to see through and would just hang in the air for minutes, totally stopping traffic behind me. Oil smoke can't hold a candle to DOT3 break fluid. Try running a small hose from a vacuum tap in the intake manifold and let it stuck-up some break fluid that way - Gauranteed results 😉

    The elements running through your fuel system are not what you have to really worry about yes the polymers can probably clog your fuel filter and two fuel filters is not the end of the world and I would do it after every full tank of gas but obviously with this car it doesn't look like anyone's that concerned but what you have to focus on is the combustion of these elements that's where the problems really occur you're talking about burnt plastic... I mean hey that's the way I see it but the reason I'm watching this video would be because I thought I was pouring a half a bottle of injector cleaner in my tank and it was used brake fluid that I had pulled out of the reservoir a few days before I totally forgot and the only reason I went to go use a half bottle of injector cleaner is because I have a definite pattern of only using a half a bottle at a time so it meant nothing to me until I saw that dark fluid and by the time I caught it it was almost all the way down so I filled the tank with gas I put a full container of injector cleaner a full container of heat with injector cleaner in it and then after I filled my tank I threw a bottle of octane booster on top of it... Fuckit.. runit...

    Chemically, gasoline is a mixture of hydrocarbons and is a hydrocarbon solvent. (for example you can dissolve styrofoam in gasoline to reduce it in size but then it is also VERY flammable) You MIGHT could get (eventually) a greater buildup on the pistons, fuel injectors, or whatever from this however.

    This is what happens when a grown ass man do not know how a combustible engine works. Break fluid is an oil, oils tend to burn, so if you mix it with something that ignites like gas it will burn. Break fluid also has a very low viscosity meaning its thin enough to be pushed throught the injectors. I would expect it to run, but if he had put more and ran the car longer the car would have run hot because break fluid burns and it would have still been burning in the chambers/cylinders after the gas is burned off...so it would have been a fire in every chamber/cylinder not just an explosion.
