Any of these issues can quickly lead to a devastating explosion if a collision or even small crash where to occur. With even the smallest amount of heat, the leaked or exposed gas could ignite and result in a massive vehicle fire or explosion. In some cases, these dangerous fires can engulf an entire vehicle and nearby surroundings, causing severe burns and permanent disfigurement to victims.
In addition to vehicle gas tanks, other machines and equipment run by gas can also be susceptible to causing explosions if the tanks are damaged. From gas-powered lawnmowers to grills, even these household tools may cause a gas explosion if pressure builds up too quickly inside the tanks.
