    I was hauling a roto tiller in the back of my edge and it tipped over and drained gas out on the carpet through the carb.

    I've tried vinegar and I've dumped baking soda on it twice. I'm not trying to be green, I'll use any chemical that will get me out of the dog house. Any suggestions?

    The carpet is not removable without dismantling half the car. The cleaning will have to take place in the car.

    I caught a pretty good buzz. I think I'll go out and set in it for a while.

    I have spilled gas in my car often and I just air it out. It goes away eventually, so tell the wife to go and fuck herself.

    It'll take a while but just airing it out should work. Blast a fan at it.

    I read that if you spilled inside the vehicle the upholstery and used the vinegar and baking soda you should put a tray of kitty litter inside the car and let it sit overnight. It should take away most if not all of the smell.

    I'm guessing that there won't be much fucking around here until the car smells better. She drives it most of the time and can be a real bitch when someone spills gas in her car.
