2 things come to mind why was he carring acetyline bottles in an enclosed vehicle and why was it laying on its side you have to look at the expansion rate of liquified gasses if a pressure vent pops aoff a drop of liquid thats enough to blow up a car as a gas that is why the bottles are all stored up right lpg users are the biggest ofenders throw the bottles in a suv or pu and drive off not thinking evrybody worrys about the gas they should worry about liquid that is where the real danger is at an example is lp expands 270 : 1 going from a liquid to a gas i gallon of gas =270 gallons of gas that's a big bang

Quick, here is another chance to pass a pile of laws, employee new gov inspectors, and add special taxes all in the name of trying to save stupid people from themselves.
