    I think the quote that you use on your posts might be the clue to your answer.

    Do you realize how much damage you can do and how many laws you're potentially breaking?

    Do yourself a favor and use round-up, something about the right tool for the job kinda thing.

    I cringe whenever a see a post like this!!!
    Sure, go ahead and apply a Federally Licensed product in the manner is was never intended nor labeled for use.
    Go ahead and apply a petroleum based product with an incredible half-life and leaching potential to an impermeable surface like a driveway.
    What do you care about the environment, licensing or professional conduct?
    Ahh, piss on it - you aren't worth the thought!

    Let's see - environmentally indefensible, legally indefensible, cognitively (thinking things through) indefensible - you have won the trifecta.

    In other words NO YOU MANY NOT USE KEROSENE FOR THIS PURPOSE!!!!! As a matter of fact, if you can't spell it, you shouldn't use it at all.

    I can't believe you had to ask this question. Whoever would use this as a grass killer is an idiot.
