I have a boat and on my boat I try to keep all things I may need in an emergency and included in there is starting fluid. I don't think I would ever decide that bug spray would ever take the place of starting fluid. I mean, if the mosquitoes were biting me I wouldn't put starter fluid on my skin. But watch what these goofballs do. I wouldn't suggest trying this although if you do decide to try it be sure to record it so we can make fun of you too!
