Somehow I've managed to splash some diesel fuel all over the fuel cap, which also ran down the side of my car. I've also got it on my hand when I was screwing the cap back on.

Does anyone know what's the best way I can clean it off my hands and off the fuel cap? Not sure if using detergent/soap is helping, think I can still smell it on my hand.

don't know if it's legal on your area (a goat dirivitive) but if you can get your hands on a lanolin product that will be great

it it's not available go to an auomotive store and see what mechanics use to clean grease

washing up liquid is fine - you wont be able to light your hands on fire anyway - so your safe :)

What Carpo said.
When I was rebuilding my last car, I spent hours and hours with fuel and oils all over my hands, ended up being "burnt" by it - the skin on my fingers peeled off and went raw. Not very nice! But a little splash, whilst annoying, won't cause you or your car any damage. It's probably the most effective car cleaner there is, in small doses!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
