Ahh yes. I can remember a neighbour spraying WD40 onto the ignition coil of his Vauxhall Corsa, hoping he might be able to limp to the dealer to get a new one fitted.

However, the engine was running at the time, (only on two or three cylinders), but the act of spraying the highly flammable propane/butane and solvent mix onto the faulty ignition coil was enough to turn his can of WD40 into a flame thrower!
