I have no idea. The people to call, however, are at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philly.

I never thought of it. I like the smell of gas and Diesel, but I don't know that we have specific receptors for it. I suppose I just remember having fun driving around in the Healey as a kid. :)

It's gotta be the memory connections. After all it's been shown that our sense of smell is the sense that pulls memories the strongest.

Mine love is two stroke or racing gas burning. All those years of motocross, jet-skis, and superbikes... LOVE those smells because of my experiences as a youth.
