The ironic thing is that what we call gasoline was once used as a dry cleaning fluid...

Nope.  But I'd probably try it (before replacing the Armacord).

Do you have experience using a dry cleaner to get out gasoline odor?

Dry cleaner?

All this talk of leaks from the fuel sender reminds me – any experience in getting the fuel odor out of the armacord that covers the fuel tank? I’ve dried it out in the sun, but it still smells of gasoline.

As I recall, when this happened previously I hosed it off with copious amounts of water, then put it in the sun to dry – which took quite some time, as it soaks up fluids like crazy.

Any better way?
