What happens if I put a tide pod in my gas tank?



This reminds me of a story that did the rounds when home computers were becoming common. A guy bought one and phones the tech helpline saying "the cup holder doesn't work". After a while ( and probably telling him to turn it on and off again), the tech guy realises he's talking about the CD drive . So he tells the customer to pack it all back into the box and take it back to the store. "So what do I tell them?",asks the customer. "Just tell them you're too f@cking stupid to own a computer" replies the tech guy.

The answer will come to you after you try it. Come back and tell us about it.


You drive until the car quits running. Then you get it towed, spend upwards of $1,000 to have the entire fuel system flushed, replace the fuel pump and maybe the injectors.


Stupid is as stupid does.


You'll GAIN quite a few issues with your vehicles performance.


Nothing good!

Your vehicle will go through the spin cycle in record time...


Your pistons will be Springtime fresh.


You car will blow pretty bubbles. Great idea. Let us know how it went.


I think it cleans out your gas tank


If you put the pod into a full tank, nothing much will happen. The detergent will be sufficiently diluted for the engine to still run OK. If you put the pod into an almost empty tank the concentration of detergent will be high enough to stop the engine working. Then just fill the tank and turn the engine over until fresh fuel is pulled through and she'll fire up.


You prove your are dumb and we can all agree

duck you sucker!

Great Idea, if you are Lawrence Welk... Oh that's Right, you kids dont know what I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TtvbBIEIQY


It the plastic. Should clog the fuel filter. As it dissolves. You Hope. Next remove fuel tank & clean. Clean fuel lines. Replace filters. I run 2 on my vehicle. Do to were I drive. You should add a extra one. With questions like this.


You'll probably be walking.


It will clean your engine


It will damage and your car die


You won't live to tell the tale, but I pray you do


You been watching that Youtuber, havent you? Can a car run on dish soap? Can a car run on WD-40? Can a car run on liquid Tylenol? Remember to turn on the heater or air conditioner.
