I would agree whole-heartedly Excavator. Not only can it kill engines but also people into the bargain. I know of at least one case where a mechanic was attempting to start a diesel engine using Easy-Start - the inlet manifold exploded killing him.
Subsequent investigations found it had ignited when it hit the hot glow-plugs whilst the inlet valves were open - BOOM!!!!
