Interesting first comment...

Anyone else thinking that this was a bomb? Even when cars catch fire, they very rarely explode. Something sounds suspicious.

dragon, you have an interesting brain, I cant believe you looked at that pic and came up with that

would a car explode if it was lpg and there was an issue? I remember an entire house going up and a few people dying when some guys tried to install an lpg system in their car at home a few years back

Meeting women on the Internet? Remember, the more similarities u “magically” have, & the more she agrees with u, the fucking crazier she is.

Not generally - if the LPG conversion is done correctly they do not explode but when the safety value goes it turns into a flame thrower. I have seen a number of vehicle fires, with a few on LPG and have never seen any explode. The only time I have seen a vehicle explosion from it being on fire was when the fuel tank was fairly much empty and full of fumes. But that was a controlled training excise and it was set up to explode.

Yeah, perhaps a little obscure now that I look at it. I put it down to the fact that it was late at night and that google maps street view guy is everywhere.

As long as you found this mildly amusing or interesting my job here is done.
