We have all heard stories about how adding the certain ingredients into the gas will cause some sort of damage to the engine. Well, one of these ingredients is none other than your regular granulated sugar.

Many theories have emerged in the past decades, this man in the video below will help us solve all our mysteries.

At the beginning of this video we see pictures from the cylinder head and the cylinder of the engine out of the lawn mower before he adds sugar in gas. He then checks the compression when engine is cold and hot.

He prepares the mixture in the jar and adds 1/16 oz. of fuel and a quarter of the cup of sugar. He gives the thorough mix to the jar but the sugar does not fully dissolve.

And the mixture is then poured into a reservoir and the engine is started. And he lets it work until all of the fuel is wasted.

At first he does not see any difference though there is some sugar left in a reservoir. He then measures the compression and there is no significant difference.

After taking a cylinder head off and he sees build up from a sugar, he states that this might cause some long-term impact on the engine. Well, lesson learned: Don’t you ever put sugar in gas!
