Extinguish Gasoline Fire!!

February 26, 2010

I recently was playing around with the Auto Odor-Z-Way and found out that this product would put out gas fires!  It is the craziest thing ever.  I had a little gas spill on our shop floor when I was doing some work on our buggy.  A buddy of mine decided that he wanted to have a cigarette and used a match to light his cigarette with.  He then threw the match, that was still on fire, on the ground right into a small puddle of gas.   Of course, the gas started on fire.  So out of instinct, I grabbed the Odor-Z-Way that was sitting next to us on the bench.  I always leave the Auto Odor-Z-Way on my bench so I can absorb oil off of my floor, like a floor dry would.  Anyway, I sprinkled the Odor-Z-Way over the fire.  Amazingly, the product put the fire out with no problem.  I thought this was kind of weird, so I tried doing this in a controlled experiment.  It worked again!  While the Odor-Z-Way was still on the gas spill, I tried to light the spot back on fire again.  It would only spark a little for a second but would not light back up.  I came to the conclusion that the Odor-Z-Way absorbed the gas vapors not allowing the gasoline to start back on fire.  I will definately keep this in mind to use Odor-Z-Way the next time I am around a gas fire.
