Re: Safety gas tank nearly blew up

Duh, I'm still stuck in 2012, I meant to say late 2012, early 2013...

I'm sure the winter fuel cycle had something to do with it, plus I added stabilizer/additive.

I was curious how much gas turns to vapor, the article below seems to say that in the summer ~14 PSI @ 100f is the max for the summer, but in the winter its around 20~ PSI @ 100f. Interesting read though.

In winter, if you fill up a balloon with air from outside (cold air) and bring it inside a heated location, that balloon will expand.

It basically bloated because the air that was originally put it was at a much lower temperature than the current local temperature, so that air expanded but had no exit, so it pushed against the plastic and bloated it.

alkizmo,

is your explanation valid for all material of the tank? what if I had my fuel tank that attached on my truck and went bloated? what is the cause?

Do you really attach that type of fuel can to your truck in Indonesia?
