Here's another cool fact

Everyone is alway's so affraid of Asbestos/asbest..
But these day's not a lot of people realize it was legaly used until the early 90's as brake padds on cars

Some reports from the 80's say in certain European tunnels the amount of Asbest particles was up to 38.000 ppm

I wonder why not all the people born before 1990 don't have died from lung cancer yet

It was to stop the problems associated with auto-ignition of the fuel under compression.

Principle among them was "micro-welding" that occurred on valves as a result of engine 'knocking'.

Engine 'knocking' happened when the fuel prematurely auto-ignited as a result of compression.



(At least I think I have that right. lol!)



This explains why “Tetraethyl lead” was added to gasoline in the past.

Re: Two Idiot Kids Die Drinking Racing Fuel

So was this a accident or did they actually drink this knowing what it was?

I can't remember the details but I'm sure its on here of another guy involved in racing who died on camera, burnt alive and you didn't see a hint of a flame. Scary

Correct-a-mundo..

I'm surprised that engines from that Era suffered from pre ignition. The octane ratings for that gas must have been in the high 70 - low 80's range. I think I have to replace the valve seats on my 79 Trans Am, because the 455 Olds in it was probably not upgraded to hardened seats. It involves taking the heads off, but I'd rather dig into it before disaster strikes. Besides , it'll give me the excuse to upgrade to Mondello ProMaxx heads.

A mixture of Mountain Dew and racing fuel, called "dewshine," could be to blame for the deaths of two Greenbrier teenagers, whose cases are among the first reported in Tennessee, according to health officials.

To date, there have been four cases, all originating from Robertson County, involving the possible consumption of "dewshine" as reported to the Tennessee Poison Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, according to medical director Dr. Donna Seger.

All four cases were reported in the past week.

“They thought they knew what it was, that it was a substitute for alcohol,” Seger said. “They thought they would get the same effects as alcohol, but they weren’t aware of how toxic it was.”

Racing fuel, used in drag racing, is made up of almost 100 percent methanol, a non-drinkable form of alcohol used for industrial and automotive purposes, Seger said.

Initially, methanol can give the same effects as ethanol, which is used in the production of alcoholic beverages, but over time, it can result in symptoms ranging from blurred vision, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea to seizures, blindness, coma and death, depending on the amount and concentration of the methanol that was consumed, Seger said.

Methanol is extremely poisonous and as little as two tablespoons can be deadly to a child, according to the National Institutes of Health website.

About two to eight ounces can be deadly for an adult, and the success of treatment is often determined by how much poison a person swallowed and how soon he or she received medical attention, the website said.

Heath workers are not aware of how prevalent dewshine consumption is among Tennesseans, Seger said.

“These two deaths have brought it to our attention,” she said. “We have to try to make sure that adolescents are aware of the toxicity. Kids usually communicate more among themselves, and we need to make more kids aware of this, statewide.”
Every kid has a smartphone so not one of them actually googled it to find out it's toxic or not
