    In which I replied

    I wouldn't rub my car with gas before detailing each time... I know gas is a flash solvent and will strip about anything, but what is wrong with this person? Wouldn't gas strip oils from the paint as well??? He does this to other "clients" cars too? :wtf: Am I missing something or should I slap this guy upside the head? :slap:

    that is possibly the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my entire life. He dumps gasoline on his car? thats like using a chainsaw to trim your fingernails. Gasoline will also eat away all the plastic pieces and trim on the car. You want to strip wax and other substances from your paint? Use a strong dish detergent. What the fuck are some people thinking?

    I have heard of WD-40 or kerosene for stubborn tar spots, but the whole car in gas? This guy has to be a fucktard....

    I'll bet he smokes while doing it, just like the Arkansas mom who burned her daughter's head while treating her for lice using gasoline-all while puffing on a Lucky.

    Gas is horrible for paint. 'nuff said.
