Re: UK Fuel crisis

When I was a student in the early 60's, the head of the bacteriology lab
used benzene in his car when he ran out of petrol one day.  It got him to
the petrol station with lots of black smoke and intense coughing by the
engine.  Required a major service as well, I recall.  He was inordinately
proud of the accomplishment for some reason.

The petrol (gas) stations have run dry in Britain, due to industrial action.
We'd be grateful if you Statesiders could e-mail us a few gallons of virtual
petrol !

Failing that, I have plenty of xylol here, also ethanol. Plus a few litres
of methanol, toluene, acetone, and perhaps even some benzene. What are the
chances that my CB600F would run on a blend of this stuff ?     ;-)
