If I poured some gas on weeds, would it kill them?



And what would be the after effect?

yes, but Diesel is better. An old WW2 vet in the neighborhood used to swear by putting diesel along the fence line. Would never have to weed-eat.

Follow it up by dropping a lit match on it. Its super effective.

These weeds are like 4 feet tall.

My real question, is how would it effect the growing area? 6 months?

It works, but cost prohibitive. Use a selective herbicide like "roundup." It won't harm trees and bushes.

What if the entire area is just huge weeds? And it is close to the house.

If I pour gas on it, what is the end game?

Back when diesel was cheap it was a good weed killer. Now it's cheaper to buy round up

Here is the real reason I ask. I have like 4 gallons of regular gas that has ruined my mower twice.

So, It's just sitting there, I know I could put some in my truck, but could I safely kill the weed problem I have by pouring a little of it on them?

ETA: The gas has gone bad because of the ethanol bullshite

Put diesel fuel in a sprayer and spray the snot out of those weeds. Neither the DEQ nor the EPA is gonna frick with you. I've been doing it for years.

I heard this was a pretty good chemical for killing plants.

Probably not, gasoline just ignites a hell of a lot easier than diesel fuel, so just be careful if there are going to be smokers or something that sparks near where you are spraying.

gasoline will kill weeds and grass if you put it on them...unfortunately, it just burns the tops down, so something like johnson grass that has a monster root system will just pop back up later...

be aware though, spraying gasoline over a large area is very explosive and will frick some shite up in a hurry if something goes wrong...

ETA: there would be no after effect, as the gasoline would pretty quickly evaporate...
