I cant do that.
I just cannot eat in the car---and come really unglued if I discover someone else (Spouse-Offspring) do this. Been like this since I was a kid.
Drinks okay----stick of jerky okay. Absolutely nothing else.
Drives her nuts when we go somewhere together.
If she wants to eat---we are stopping and going inside.

No, the issue I have is the smell
Weird, cause I’m a smoker.
Just carrying an order from the takeout window to home, in the bag, I still smell it the next day.

Same here, I don’t allow eating in the truck and I can even smell takeout up to a day later.

I bought a used 2010 Lariat 5 years ago, and the previous owner was definitely a smoker. As much as the dealer I bought it from tried to cover it up, you could always smell it upon opening the door. It was exactly what I was looking for, so bought it and used multiple NOS Guard Odor Eliminator treatments to get rid of the smell. Five years later there's still an ever-so-slight hint of cigarette smoke if the truck hasn't been driven in a few days, but the NOS treatments made a big difference.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Might be something I might be interested in.
SHE is a reformed smoker and just hates the smell.
But I guess SHE will drive the truck occasionally.
I’ll have her order some of this and we can give it whirl in my two trucks.
I don’t smoke in hers, just cause I like her a little bit

I ordered my Platinum with the work surface in preparation for my family eating in my truck. I won't say that I like my 7 & 5 y.o. eating in the cab, but we are going to use the truck to see country from time to time, so it is an inevitability.

I’ve used these in a couple of used cars to get rid of odors. Works on smoke too. You still have to deep clean first, I cleaned everything, vents. carpet, etc. Then I run this for 90 min, and run the air on recirc for about 15 min.

Sadly, yes. Don’t smoke in her car or the house.
Quit smoking in the house over 20 yrs ago.
I am generally the only person in the trucks, and no one else drives them.
