We didn't drink the water, (we caught rain water) but a couple months later still could taste the diesel in the water. Initially we could feel the diesel on our skin or anything we washed. We paid locals to do laundry. When out in the boats, if we came across a clear stream, we'd wash there.

What’s the matter? Diesel smell and taste good lol
