Gasoline on Paint

Q: Gasoline spilled on my car’s paint when I was filling up. I immediately cleaned it and washed the car. Will the gas harm my car’s paint?

A: It is good that you washed your car right away. I would also recommend waxing the affected area. Gas can strip wax, which could eventually lead to fading in that area. Waxing the finish will help to maintain the shine and protect the paint.
