Be Careful With Your Chemicals

In the last year I have learned that a product called Brakleen can be used as a starting fluid for engines. Never knew that before, never had call to use a starting fluid. I have used it successfully to help start my lawnmower and generator engines.

Tonight, since I am up at 4 am again, as is my usual status these days, I was watching automotive repair videos. I know, videos with naked chicks are much better, but I am to the point it is best not to excite myself.
