Recently I have noticed an unusual issue I have with Diesel fuel. This change has happened to me in the last several months. When I fill up with Diesel fuel at the garage, I can taste and smell the Diesel fuel on my breath, and hands etc for some time after. It feels as though the vapours from Diesel fuel, emitted from the nozzle, are 'binding' to something in my body. It typically stays lingering for around 1 hour before slowly reducing. Its not overly powering, but definitely enough to be noticeable. This never used to happen to me.
I'm just wondering if perhaps there is something internal to my body (bloodstream and tissues for example), that is causing the Diesel to bind to it, and then my body has to gradually eliminate the Diesel.
I might have been exposed to something a while back (Alum), and wondering if it could still be somehow locked into my system, and the Diesel is binding to it?
Alternatively, are there any substances which a human could be contaminated with that the Diesel would bind to strongly? What type of organic substances, in general, does Diesel have an affinity? for, in that the Diesel mixes easily with?
I feel like my body is being exposed to something, and this is one of the weird side effects. I also have noticed that I have an unexplained higher temperature than normal, without any fever.
Thanks for any opinions, I know its a bit of a weird one!
