Car With Hole in Gas Tank Spilling Fuel

You know how the Hollywood heroes like Banderas or Willis will shoot a whole in the other guy’s fuel tank and let him run a way only to kill him by lighting the trail of gasoline left behind? Well reality is nothing like that.
Youtube HighTechCorvette filmed this Toyota as it was spilling gasoline all over the road after hitting a fallen drive shaft that was in the middle of the road. The car then stated spewing fuel all over the road as either the gas tank or the fuel line were punched.

However, the fuel is quickly dispersed by the air going under the car. Though you can see a bit of a trail on the road, most of the volatile fuel disperses.

Somebody needs to tell the owner quickly. But not the guys filming it, because obviously if the car turns into a fireball it will get a million hits on Youtube and the video will be featured on every major website.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
