I have two fuel containers. One has gasoline and the other diesel.
How do I tell which is which?
Is the gasoline more flammable?
If I put a little of each on tissue paper would one burn quicker?
Hello and thank you for trusting me with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your problem. if you do put some of each on a tissue the gas will light right up and the diesel will be hard if not impossible to light with a match. Diesel does tend to smell stronger like oil. Let me know if you have more questions on this I am always willing to help, Thanks. Be careful if you are lighting this be sure to do it outside with the cans a good distance away.
