CNG Tank Explodes While Owner Fills Up
11 September 2012 - Autoblog
A driver in Iran recently had a scare when his car exploded at a filling station.
Details are scarce surrounding the video below, but from what we can discern, the driver of the white Iran Khodo Samand backed into the station and the attendant began filling his tank. When the driver and popped the trunk for a look inside, the vehicle exploded, knocking him to the ground. From the looks of things, neither the driver, the attendant nor the two individuals standing on the other side of the island were injured in the incident.
It's unclear what exactly caused the car to erupt, though there's some indication the accident could have been initiated by a faulty compressed natural gas tank. Take a look at the video below for yourself to see if you can figure out exactly what happened.
