      Solvent for Diesel Fuel  Bookmark   

What is the best way to get glassware that previously contained diesel fuel clean. 

Hate to throw away perfectly good containers!

wouldnt just using more diesel feul and maybe a little elbow grease to remove any residue, then just repeatd rinses with warm water work. seems cheap and easy and i cant see why that wouldnt be fine.

You are correct!  diesel fuel can be removed using acetone. (had to do so one many occasions)  May need repeated rinses, but it usually comes out without a problem.

Act quickly or not at all.
