I use one on the bike. Works great.
When I am in a hurry I just grab the air hose for the front of my truck cause it likes to collect water in crevices.

I have been using a leaf blower to get the water out of the nooks and crannies for a few years now. I really like using it on the wheels and tires.

I use an air hose off the compressor to get in all the cracks of the truck. Then I go to the chammy(spelling?)

2 stroke fuel is excellent

First clean the drive way with it.
