    Worst Thing To Put in a Gas Tank?

    So I've always heard the thing about sugar in the gas tank, which really doesn't do anything but clog things up on these newer cars with all the filtration. But with that said, I've also heard of people putting bleach, Coke, or even linseed oil in gas tanks to get their own special form of revenge on someone who has done them wrong.

    So, folks, I may be getting a 93 Honda Civic motor to play around with. What would be the best way to kill it through the gas tank?

    What would an energy drink REALLY do to a 4 cylinder engine, though?

    The video loses a lot without the audio, but it looks like youtube is bending to the riaa so no audio.

    Seriously, use hydrogen peroxide. It is like NOS but mixed with the gas. NOS and H2O2 both release oxygen at combustion temperatures and therefore increase the burn rate. You could get a real increase in power for a while and then you will burn up and destroy the engine.

    I've heard that moth balls in the tank will make it run really fast for a bit until it blows itself apart.

    If someone is giving you a 93 Civic, I would suggest you drive it instead, drive it hard mind you, they can be very fun
