Default Got gas on chains... bad???

Because of a recent gas leak, I've had about 1 to 2 gallons of gasoline spill onto my chains. Everythings dried and it looks ok but is there anything i should look out for? Im planning to spray some chain wax on it tomorrow.

Lube it up and it should be fine. Gasoline is supposed to attack o-rings, but probably has an effect only with soaking.

it'll be ok as long as your chain wasn't drenched for an extended period of time

just clean the chain with wd40 really well then lube it up
