    Default Diesel Damage

    Will a Diesel spill on the paintwork damage it at all? Its just an oil unlike petrol but anyone got a better idea than me?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It'll strip the wax off, and it'll melt bumpers on Renaults (my old Clio's rear bumper went all sorts of strange shapes due to diesel spills). Real cars will be fine.
