I love it. Probably too much, but I try not to overindulge.
Wow, I thought I was the only one.
I used to, but the newer oxygenated gasolines just don’t smell as good.
When I was a child, I thought the gas station attendant washed the windshield with gas, since I could smell gas when he/she was washing the windshield. :smack:
I love it - it reminds me of being out on the lake on boats and jet-skiing.
prefer deisel myself…takes me back to drum corps…
Hate hate hate it. Makes me feel sick.
I like it when it’s faint. When it gets strong, it quickly becomes unpleasant. Then comes the raging headache.
I also like the exhaust smell of a lawnmower.
Love it, if those are my only two options. I’d go more with “like it,” or find it pleasant rather than repulsive, when I catch a whiff.
But I’ve never stuck my face over a vat of it, or inserted the nozzle of a gas canister into my nostril and taken a deep snort, both of which I understand may have some secondary effects…
When I’ve just come back from a few days in Rotorua (city in a geothermal area, lots of sulphur pools and geysers), the smell of petrol seems to remind me of Rotorua’s suplhur smell. So it reminds me of very cool stuff. After a while, that wears off, though. I usually don’t notice the smell of petrol more than anything else.
I spent about 5 years re-fueling aircraft of all sizes.
For 40 hours a week, I was exposed to avgas (hi octane leaded gasoline) and jet fuel (essentially diesel fuel).
I neither like nor dislike the smell. It is just another chemical smell.
Long term exposure to these fuels doesn’t seem to
Despite the frequency that I was
Studies show that I might have a decreased
What was I saying?
I like it okay, but I used to LOVE the smell of leaded gas. MMM-mmmm. Almost as good as the smell of mimeograph copies or Jiffy markers.
I prefer napalm (ooh – in the morning, to DIE for, literally ), but I’ll settle for gas.
I guess I like it, my local 7-11 offers me a twofer. It’s a gas station with ashtrays on top of the trash cans. The cigarette smoke gives me a tingly feeling. That, I hate.
Love it, but only for 20 minutes. Seriously, after that I start to get sick of it.
sometimes it doesn’t smell too bad, sometimes it makes me sick.
I like it. My dad worked on cars as a mechanic both professionally and as a hobby, and to this day I associate gasoline and garage smells with him and my childhood ( and the better parts of it at that ).
Mmmmmmm … solvents …
Bleach hmmmmm now there is a smell I love and that weird purple stuff that school newsletters were printed with before photocopying mmmmm.
Petrol not so much, but I identify with your liking sniffing chemicals.
