and thats how you die in an uncontrolled flaming fireball.......steal your kats kitty litter, or just use a giant floor squeegie and mop it out....the remnants will evaporate...

seriously, if you dry most of it up with (i dont know what it is, not cat litter though) and thenthen tehre was a little left so we burned it. its no big deal guys.. gasoline on the floor isnt all that bad to burn up.. after about 3 minutes (more or less depending on the amount of gasoline) its done.

It still isn't a good idea to have a gasoline fire on the floor of your garage. It may not be a big deal to you, but it is still quite dangerous, even if you got lucky and nothing happened.

Just soak up as much as you can then open the garage and let it kinda air out if the smell is still there.

soak most of it up with paper towels. then use brake parts cleaner to get rid of the excess oils left on the floor.

CAUTION: DO NOT DO THIS NEAR ANY SOURCE OF HEAT!
