The secret of silicone that few people know about.

I disagree with taking this down.
With all due respect RG, they are lots of things, shown here and life in general, that require some level of intelligence and caution to use. I will venture to say are very few subscribers to this list, that are not aware of the explosion hazard of vaporized solvents.
It is dangerous to eat. It is dangerous to drive. It is dangerous to just sit and watch TV. It is dangerous to be alive. The trick is NOT to remove all of the dangerous things, the secret is to be aware.
Shifting gears..... My question centers around silicones compatibility with gasoline. I know that most silicone formulations are suitable for use in contact with gasoline. There are some that are "resistant". I do not know however if this true for "purified" gasoline, as I am not sure what that is. When I was a kid, we could buy "white gas" from a special pump at the gas station. We used it as a cleaning solvent, and fuel for camp stoves and lanterns. Perhaps it is the additives in modern gasoline that are the problem. So, maybe Coleman fuel would work for this?
As I recall white gas was quite a bit more expensive, maybe 30 cents a gallon instead of 22 cents for regular gasoline(that . Of course to keep things in perspective, I got paid 50 to 75 cents, maybe a $1.00 for mowing the neighbors lawn with push mower... the kind with NO ENGINE on it!!! Of curse that did save me the ?? cents I would need for fuel if I had a power mower.
