Will you have serious engine problems if someone dropped mothballs in your gas tank?

Depending on how many were added, there is a chance of fuel lines/filter getting clogged. Other than that, you wouldn't have any problems. A one time occurence shouldn't be that bad. I would run the tank empty, refill with clean gas AND change my crankcase oil. Mothballs are made of D-chlorobenze which, in a liquid solution, is a solvent that can break down the lube characteristics of motor oil.

No, just because someone had "serious anger" doesn't mean they have to kill someone because of it. They can handle their problems in another way. Now serious mental illness... that could be one.~G

The most serious problem is possibly trying to communicate with someone who has to be right, will not listen to your views, and talks over you instead of listening to you.
