I doubt it. If so, he would be dead, and or seriousely burned after that arc was struck. He doesn't look like he would take the time to clean the gas tank from gas, etc.

Lol, I'd go by and kick the boards....oh well, if he keeps doing **** like that he'll die pretty soon anyway. I'd just be speeding up the process.

That's just nature weeding out the idiots. Natural Selection I think it's called.

Strangely enough that's not true. A buddy of mine had a leak in his tank and he proceded to FILL IT UP TO THE TOP before welding on it. He explained to me that it's not the gas that's so explosive, it's the fumes. Never the less, I stood FAR away when he welded it!

Yes, Gasoline liquid is not flammable, the vapors are. I posted this awhile back before I really thought about it and knew this information. However I'd still be a bit nervous. The clostel thing I've done like that is weld a bumper mount on an 85 Fox, the gas tank for pretty darn close. But otherwise, thanks for pointed it out!
