:? One downside to gas, if you fill your tank and than write off your car, you can't empty it into a jerrycan :evil:

If you have the right fittings etc you can decanter most of the gas into a larger cylinder, just you can't just jam a hose down the filler and suck to you get a mouth full of petrol.

I bought my ED from the auctions to grab the 5spd from it, and it had a full tank of juice in it! Talk about stoked, that's enough to run my lawn mower & whipper snipper for a long time! My EB's dual fuel, don't use much petrol in it.

I must laugh at ppl worrying about a $30 tank of lpg. $70+ worth of petrol, now that's a big chunk of the avg weekly wage & i can understand ppl siphoning the tank before insurance get's the car.

Cheers
