Do you let people smoke in your truck?

As the title states, I DON'T smoke at all, but some of my friends always ask me if they mind if i let them smoke in it. I tell them it's okay as long as they role the window down. This works somewhat but it always smells like ciggerettes in there for a day or two after then it goes away. Should I start saying no? I hate the smell of ciggerettes but it doesn't bother me if the window is down to much. My truck doesn't smell like smoke right now but as I said only for a day or so after people smoke in it. What do you all do?

Do they roll it down all the way or a couple inches?

I smoke (in the quitting process haven't had one in 3 weeks now woo hoo!) but I always used to have my windows all the way down. Even in the cold of winter. And an air freshener helps a little.

I tell them to put it down half way, and I do have a freshener in there right now so that helps. I just can't stand the smell of butts anymore. I just wanted some opinions from other people on what you say? Also I role down my window at the same time.. This is only sometimes though it's not smoked in much..

I have before, the rules are the window has to be down and the cig never enters the truck. If they still want to smoke after that its fine, I've never had a problem with smoke smell doing it that way.

You could always put a dead fish under your seat. Then you wouldn't be able to smell that stale cigarette smell

Maybe just have them pay a .25 fee each time and go buy a bottle of febreeze?

Yeah I mean I don't have a problem with the smell inside the truck the fabric smells fine, I just personally can't stand it anymore. I tell them to roll it down but the butt is still kinda in the truck, must mostly near the window.

Yeah I can totally tell the difference between a smokers vehicle and mine, ha. I guess i'm cool with it once in a while.. I keep it pretty clean and fresh in there so whatever.... I guess it isn't to big of a deal.

I was a smoker up until a few weeks ago as well. I dont want anyone smoking in my truck anymore, it's not because of the temptation or anything. It leaves everything smelling like smoke, leaves a residue on the windows, get into the HVAC ducts, and eventually is really hard to get out. Even with the windows down, the odors are still clinging to any fabric, foam or plastic in the truck. It's personal opinion though, so your choice.

I let my friends smoke in my vehicles before. I've never had a problem until recently. My SVT had obviously been smoked in before I bought it. I shampooed everything I could, even the headliner. Well, a few weeks ago I found a cig-butt burnt halfway into my seat, on the seam where the leather and the red cloth insert comes together on the backseat, of my effin SVT! I was pissed. He has lost all privileges.

It just pisses me off since I let them smoke one, then like 20 mins later they whip out another, its like wtf you just had one stop making my truck smell like azz. I'm probably going to start saying no. At least people respect it and ask me first..

No body has ever asked me to eat in my truck haha. I don't eat in my truck it just makes a mess even when you are being carefull. I keep my truck clean but just don't really want it being smoked in anymore. It's only been smoked in probably a few times anyways..
