This may be one of those tricks that you never get to actually use, but if you did need to, you could be a hero. The below link takes you to a movie showing how to fix a flat tire using WD-40 and a lighter. I never saw or heard of this technique before but if you were in a situation where you needed to get a tire back on it's rim and you are in the middle of no where, well... this would be a good Blog Post to have watched...

and for our German FFN membership, what are they saying?

Dead link, could you try it again?

I always have a servicable spare tire in my truck. I don't cartry WD-40, even though it's probably the law here in Texas haha. I have heard of some Good "ol boy using a 22 cal bullet instead of an in-line fuse and bang. TCSS

PS Ditto on the dead link and I'm curious.
Here's another butane/lighter tire inflation video, but as Ted showed us, this can go wrong very quickly.

Here is how to do it safely and get a special reward

And more on how NOT to do it...
you need touse starting fuild not wd 40

Can't think of anything to say about this one!
