Medically Naptha is one of the leading causes of Urinary Bladder Cancer. Stay with petrol mate!

Hello,

some information about Naphtha, i believe no one will use naphtha after reading this information. I think petrol is cheaper than a hospitalization.

http://www.hpa.org.uk/web/HPAwebFile.../1203084377869

this link will give you all information regarding naphthalene.

Burning of fossil fuel itself is not friendly to nature, so why we want to add more damage to nature by adding naphthalene to petrol for saving few bucks.
dont add naphthalene to petrol.

dont add naphthalene to petrol.

while I agree with your sentiment, naphthalene is not naphtha, and a similar amount of namphthalene is likely to be found in petrol as it is in naphtha.

The hazards of petrol are similar to the ones in the link you have sent.
