What Happens If You Drink Gasoline?


Drinking or breathing gasoline can be life-threatening. Gasoline is toxic, and it’s made of various chemicals which have very different effects on the human body. Gasoline contains mostly hydrocarbons; these include butane, benzene, formaldehyde, acetone, and other organic solvents known to cause cancer.

Answer: Drinking gasoline can cause abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, and bleeding from the mouth. 

It is also possible for it to cause burns if ingested accidentally because it evaporates very easily with human heat causing serious inflammation and burns on the tissue on contact-especially that of the mouth, esophagus and stomach.

The most common harm done by gasoline is gastrointestinal distress-painful sensations in the long gut area accompanied by nausea and vomiting caused by gasoline ingestion.

Answer: I don’t recommend drinking gasoline because it’s not healthy for you. Gasoline is toxic and can be fatal if ingested, especially for children.
