Posted:I was just kind of curious what exactly happens to the left over fluid that is spinned off before we start up. I use Coleman's and I just realized that the stuff can't be too great for the surfaces it's left on. Considering I spin on public tennis courts I was kinda curious.

Posted:left over fluid mostly evaporates.. but if you're spinning off on public tennis court.. I'd find some rough ground outside of the court and spin off there as most fluids do leave behind a very slippery residue.. and you wouldn't want to be responible for some poor budding tennis ace to slip and run the lenght of the court on his/her face..

I'd also be inclined to make sure that any fluids were kept out of the eco system as much as possible (dey poisonous don't cha know ).. ie don't spin off where there are purdy little flowers or where ickle aminals frolick and play when your not about..

Posted:Well, I do go to GWU . . . and the kids around here are rather rich, spoiled, and arrogant so honestly it would be rather amusing to see some of these kids go flying. But for some reason i doubt that Mommy and Daddy (chances are theyre both attorneys) would approve so yeah, I'll prolly spin off in the off court areas.

I actually went back today during the day to see the court. Looked like lil oil dots.

Posted:If you spin coleman camp fuel off on a surface like concrete, it just evaporates, even on a cold day. However, it does kill grass, even in small amounts, so don't spin off on grass.

Posted:Don't spin off when there's fresh washing on the line either. I like the smell of kero and the pretty little stains it leaves, my flatmate however, does not.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
