I Like the Smell of Gasoline

    Back In The 70's Before It Was All Unleaded...

    ...when I was growing up, it's something I remember LOVING to smell while sitting in the back seat of my parents car while they were filling up. Still smells good to me, but just not quite the same.

    Even Though I Call It "Petrol" Now ..

    ... it still smells just as lovely this side of the ponbd as it did in Ohio when I was growing up. The fondest memory relating to this was when I was about 5, my grandma managed to find some scratch 'n' sniff stickers for me that were gasoline scented. Any other 80s children here...

    I don't like to smell it directly from a

    container but I do enjoy the smell when I'm at the gas station and sometimes like to trail a vehicle emitting a strong gassy exhaust on a hot day. I get tired of people telling me how bad it is inhaling the fumes and what it will do to my health. It relaxes me so let me enjoy...

    Not Sure Why

    Just like it but have no reason or memories to relate to. I would probably like it more if it were cheaper ahhh but as that oil drifts towards us and hurricane season rolls in I imagine the prices will only increase. *heavy sigh*

    Wierd

    What the **** is wrong with us?  It can't be good to like the smell of gas!  I sometimes even drip a little onto my hand when I fill up my car on purpose so I can smell it throughout the day!  I will say, though, I only like a faint aroma of it.  The smell of...

    Very Much

    Gasoline smells so good. Ever since I was a kid I've loved it's smell. When my family would stop at a gas station I would always roll down the window or get out of the car to smell it better, lol. I still enjoy the smell. :)

    It's Weird, I Know!

    As a kid, I participated in a trend of collecting scrath & sniff stickers!  I don't know why it was so big, but we would collect them, trade them, even store them in photo albums!  One of my favorite was the gasoline scented!  I loved it & do to this day!

    Ever Since I Was Little...

    Even as a little kid I have always loved the smell of gasoline. Whenever my grandma, mom, or whoever I was with went to get gas with me in the car, I would always inhale really deep if they left the car door open. I sometimes imagine being able to drink it, like its fizzy like a...

    Petrol

    I would drink and bathe in it, if i wouldn't die. Diesel exhaust is also heavenly. There is just something mechanically romantic about the smell of freshly burnt hydrocarbons and all of the other waste products in diesel exhaust.

    Yeah, Man.

    It's very nice.  I have always loved the smell of gasoline at the pump.  It's not as easy to smell as it once was, now that they have those rubber flanges on the pumps, but remember the good ole days?  It was nice.  You'd drive up to the pump and the air would...
