Does anybody know the gas that Bondo outgasses when drying? A neighbour is sensitive to certain gasses and he needs to know if he will be affected by Bondo. Thanks.

According to the Material Safety Data Sheet the hazardous ingredient is listed as Styrene. I would recommend you wear a respirator and some good gloves.
Some import points from the MSDS:
UPDATE: 3M has a site where you can search for 3M's MSDS of the specific Bondo product you are using. It looks like some of the hazardous ingredients may be different depending upon the specific product. 3M MSDS Search
One brand of body filler I used claimed to emit a neurotoxin. Read the can carefully for safety information.
