Removing Gasoline Stain
I had a gas leak during the last 50 miles of a ride recently. Luckily I didn't go up in flames, and the cause of the leak (cracked fuel line disconnect) was easy to fix. The problem is that the gas that ran down the crankcase cover on the right side stained the silver surface of the cover, and I can't remove the yellowish stain. I tried (in this order) soap and water, mineral spirits, denatured alcohol, and, finally, automotive rubbing compound. My dealer says there is no way to remove the stain. Any ideas?
