    Anyone from the forum who's done it got some footage of it?? I am simply not game, but is obviously a 'proven' (even if not the safest) method of being able to drop all the air from a leaking tyre to clean out the bead properly and then whack it back on ...

    Do you still only need a small amount? Or being not quite as flammable, does it need a bigger dose of spray? That I'd always my concern, spraying too much and blowing the b@stard up completely ... and me with it!! LOL

    For real?? That's outstanding ... love the whole "necessity breeds innovation" aspect of four wheeling!!! LOL ... makes sense I suppose - just plugs up the small leaks ... not sure it would taste so good on my sangers post use though!!! LMFAO ...

    The only problem I can see with Zippo, is that it's hard to see and if you spill it on yaself or clothes, there is a chance of getting burnt, it's also not as volatile as gas or sprays.
    some have used petrol but I would not take the risk with liquid fuels myself.

    Quite right, forgot to say only but only in extreme condition if nothing else available. In normal circumstances we are using traditional tools (metal rods, recovery stripes and air compressors).
    Second thing what I forget to say is that is zippo fluid was used mostly in cold condition like - 10 C and more.
    And of course, whatever you doing on that issue be extremely careful an do things away from the car more is possible.
    the ferret -thanks for correction
