We did an experiment and got funny results.Revin Alex “driving”the ExpertKolodochkin Michael “at the wheel”Expert
Since childhood we remember that a packet of sugar, poured in the gas tank that can permanently poison the existence of the owner of the car. In the famous Franco-Italian Comedy “Cuckoo” model 1965 with Burvilem and de Funes starring this technique worked perfectly. And everyone was funny.
It’s hard to say how many tanks have undergone since then such mockery: good people in the world a lot. Algorithms for elimination of the consequences of such “jokes” was drawn pretty terrible: that there is only one replacement fuel lines clogged with sticky sweet substance. And really, what do those who, as they say, “got under the hand”?
We set up a simple experiment. Took a glass jar with a 95-m gasoline has alcohol in it, three sugars “Chaikovsky” (as written on the box — using f!), made in the town of Valuiki, and waited, and when the sugar begins to behave as if he was in a tea Cup.
The ancient philosophers in the debate often said, “Look!” Can be expressed similarly: they say, look, here are three lumps of sugar that had lain in gasoline for many hours… Conclusion: sugar in gasoline to dissolve does not want to!The ancient philosophers in the debate often said, “Look!” Can be expressed similarly: they say, look, here are three lumps of sugar that had lain in gasoline for many hours… Conclusion: sugar in gasoline to dissolve does not want to!
And-and-and… never came. Even after six hours, all three pieces retain their original form, not even trying to create a new brand of gasoline with a high calorie content. It is clear that when driving they will sooner or later collapse from the shaking, but the desire to merge in ‘ 95 they definitely will not increase.
Of course, such experiments repeatedly put to us. The verdict has always been clear: no harm from sugar is not and can not be. However…
However, well is not so simple. Yes, in petrol, the sugar does not dissolve… But he is excellent in contact with water! And if the gas tank has water, and there she is a frequent guest, the situation is a little bit different. At the bottom of the tank appears a layer of liquid with a higher density than that of gasoline. In this case the fuel pump will begin to suck.
Adding to the gasoline a little bit of water, we immediately realized that the situation has changed radically. The lumps of sugar have disappeared, and the lower part of our bulb, took something like sugar syrup.Adding to the gasoline a little bit of water, we immediately realized that the situation has changed radically.

And you start? It is easy to check instead of tubules for a cocktail to take the filter of thin clearing of fuel (for example, Grants from the Frets) and boldly immersed in a jar of potion…Alas: sweet water lapped quietly “procesales” out! And if so, barriers to sugar, in General does not exist, no matter how many filters nor stood in his way.
Therefore, all publications of revelatory nature, including shows from “Mythbusters”, prove to be, shall we say, not quite correct. Of course, water in gasoline is undesirable guest, but it in some cases can make a company to another uninvited guest — Sahara.
How to remove gasoline from water is a separate issue. We have already talked about it. Writing about sugar, of course, more fun, but the water in the fuel can cause a lot of trouble. However, in the near future we want to return to this thread, just a little bit “the other side”.
Everyone who has their own judgment on the “sugar” issue, we invite you to speak. The main question remains: is it possible to harm the power system of the sugar or not?
