At the Touchless Car Wash on Divisadero & Oak Streets, the attendants will gladly pump your fuel free of charge, but it will cost you to have them scrub all that post-Burning Man Playa residue off of your art car, RV or repurposed school bus.

That easy-to-miss sign, which includes a prehistoric drawing of a campfire and a caveman wielding a spear for some reason, advertises $55 car washes for "Burning Man Vehicles". That price is, as you can see, more than double the price of their cheapest $22 rinse. Anyhow, Burners in need of a cleanup should remember to bring real American currency. That barter thing doesn't work so well back here in the real world where your neighbors drive electric blue Aston Martins.
