    You would really have to get the right mix of conditions, amount of flammable material in the right place, heating up fast enough... but at least that is why people tend to go water based.

    i looked at my engine today after using EXTREME SHINE TIRE SPRAY and it was best i have ever saw in 46 yrs of spraying my engines.
    dont know how long it will last but it shines like a semi-gloss satin ,looks beautiful.unreal.

    Re: Using Meguiars tire shine spray in place of engine dressing

    Resurrecting an old thread...Has anyone (lately) tried a 'tire dressing' on engines?

    I realize/know that there are "D" products that do a pretty good job, but I really don't need a gal of product (that becomes 4 gal after dilution ).

    TIA!
