Sugar in the Gas tank is a notorious way to ruin a car. Does it actually work, or is it just a pervasive urban legend? Bart explores the science of dissolving things before we try to find out. We dump 4 lbs of Sugar in the tank of a truck and run it at 3000 RPM to find our what find out what happens!

Bart teaches us how cars work by blowing stuff up and cutting things in half. It’s a science show for the car lover who’s easily bored. Join Bart as he explains the science behind everything automotive. This is cars down to the atom. This is Science Garage.

Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

      Maybe should of drove the car around for a while. The motion of the car would shake up the tank and mix the sugar into the gas. Re do please!

      Could you do one on the physics of cars in inclement weather? Why cars behave the way they do when you drive in the rain or in the snow?

      Ethanol is polar, sugar in a flex fuel vehicle with E-85, or even E-15 will pick up sugar.

      It has to get past the filter on the fuel pump pickup first. Unless theres a hole in it nothing could happen.
      If it made its way through the pump (and didnt seize it) it would definintely plug an injector.

      I had a punk who thought it was funny to run my kids into the ditch as they walked home from the school bus. One night " Someone"' dumped a bottle of pancake syrup into his tank. He spent a lot of time working on that piece but more time walking after that day. I never spoke to his stupid @$$ but he had the bed off to get to the fuel tank , then the air intake off , and finally he had the head off. It sat that way for a week or so and then it disappeared. I think the looser was sent off to prison for a while soon after getting a sweet tank full

      What if you dissolve the sugar in water first and then put it in the gas tank? Better yet, just walk up to a car with a coke bottle and pour it in.
