gets some 911 if you cant find any go get some gas (very last resort) and put in about 1 gallon to 25 gallons of diesel make sure you at lest add 2 stroke oil with that gas or you may really have problems

You cannot read an MSDS and assume it is a ingredient list. The MSDS is just going to show you the carrier solvents. There is more to these products than what the MSDS will tell you.

Isn't that what the MSDS is for, to tell you what is in the product?

My old boss did that on a Mack truck I drove about 20 years ago and it worked like a charm. I wouldn't make a habit out of it, but it will get you out of a bind.

Hi:

I just want to thank all of you for all the advise and help I received here. Was able to locate the products suggested here, at a local Canadian Tire store. Without your help, I most certainly would not be able to see my son who is in hospital in Northern Alberta, after the car they were travelling in, was hit by a drunk driver. Thanks!!!! Now to hit the road and make the trip.

Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy New Year! You are the best!!!!!!
