Lightbulb why not ?

And why just naptha, we can also use "booster pellets" of RDX, TNT, etc.
As long as it combusts/explodes, anything will work !!

Default No ways

Ajay..were u sarcastic or were u sarcastic..?.....naptha cannot be used in the car engine...as different fuels have different ignition temperature..and different substances after combustion elements released by them..and the cars are made for fuels reccomended by manufacturer..if u use any other fuels..they might not work in the first place..and even if they do..it will lead to extensive engine damage..catalyic converter damage(if present)..and most of all..will not pass puc test..and about using booster pellets of RDX,TNT etc...lets try that on ajays car...what say..???

Naptha is a fuel yes.... but not for cars... definitely not... it is added in petrol to adulterate the fuel...

Only place i know where Naptha is safe as a fuel is in my Zippo windproof...

i had seen the engine of a m800 which was run on naptha with its head removed...and it was full of carbon deposits..and i am sure you do not want somthing like that to happen to your ride.
