      If you're on the western side of Pa, try adding some Iron City beer to the gas. That crap's gotta be good for something. Right?

    Back in my racing HS years I use to add a quart of Tranny fluid in with an oil change...supposidly acts as a cleaner and I also use to dump water straight into a hot engines carb to remove any carbon build up. Rev the engine up and start dumping to the point it wants to die. As your doing that a thick white cloud comes out the tailpipe and goodbye carbon!!!

    Impressive. You are "experiment crazy" but incredibly results..
    while I was in Ecuador, my taxi driver pulled into a gas station, put a gallon of gas and a gallon of water and the car kept running normally. I was a little bit scare, but he said he had done this on a daily basis on his rented taxi, that still made me feel nervous, but I the same time surprised that the car kept going. Another taxi had disconnected the gas lines, and instead he had attached a propane tank in the trunk. That was horrified and i made my destination shorter and stepped out of that time bomb. But I enjoyed your experiment. You might want to experiment the 50/50 water/gasoline and see it for yourself. Pleaee don't try the propane tank. Keep it going, but b safe. Thanks.

    It would have been interesting to see and test the exhaust smoke as well as do an engine compression test before and after, the smell may have been the excess carbon and oild build up just burning off. Something you don't try at home, just in case.

    loved your experiment. i am wondering if in the newer cars if that would damage the catalytic converter and the o2 sensors. in the old car as the one that your are experimenting, it's probably time to replace those anyway. so, it does not matter.

    Brake fluid does expand seals.. I wouldn't add it to jacks and such purely but do know you can put a drop or two to help seal the gaskets a lot better cause they expand.. I don't know if you say that by end cause I'm still in middle of video.. It may help seal some things in your car and make it work better.. but don't take this as advice over a mechanic or anything.. Not saying it will fix leak problems it but some cases it could..

    Careful with that! Just like people get leukemia from breathing gasoline or dangerous fumes, the same may happen with that stuff, maybe worse. Be careful. I'm not a doctor but I've heard of this before.

    I have squeeky brakes on my new car. Obviously putting oil on the discs would be stupid. Someone suggested washing up liquid. Could you see if that helps? I'd try it myself but my car is still under warranty and i don't want to do anything that might void it.

    Fuel lines are not designed for brake fluid. It would cause the rubber to swell and become weak. If you didnt burn it all.off right away, left some sitting in the hoses for a while you would have early failure of the hoses.

    Is this an idiot how to? "Ok idiots, follow along" What happens if accidentally put brake fluid in your gas tank? Answer if you're so stupid you accidentally put brake fluid in your car? Get a tutor and learn to read a label. Then the Car Manual, "BRAKE FLUID ONLY" (btw brake fluid is a petroleum-based product so of course, it mixes).

    You can also add Gasoline in your brake fluid to stop faster. The higher the octane, the more horsepower it gives your brakes, and the faster you can stop.

    And the reason is because I normally put brake fluid in a spray bottle and spray it through the intake while the engine is running at 1500 rpm to 2500 rpm. The reason is to decarbonize the cylinder valve seats. Then i would spray the same amount of water to wash it away. Guess im used to the smell.

    With 200K miles on it, litres of brake fluid in the tank and "not missing a beat", I fail to see how you can call that a "piece of junk" and not an example of superb Japanese engineering.

    After watching this I decided to put brake fluid in my Toyota landcruiser 3 weeks later fuel filter light came on and I drained the excess crap out and the light went out but the car has been running much better than before more power so I suppose the brake fluid has cleaned the crap out of the fuel system
