I think you're thinking of dropping the cig in the tank. It will ignite the vapors... But as the guy said, it's a temp, and looks pretty secure...so I say get over it and back to the thread...

i cant rag on you too much because mine isnt safely strapped down, but my rig has less than 50 miles on it, and is strictly a mall crawler until i get the kinks worked out of the motor and tranny...

Just finished a lightbar set up using the 2" x2" aluminum fence post and six mini-halogen driving lights from Northern Tool Supply. Total project cost was just under the $100 objective. Mounted the bar just below the roof basket where it gets maximum protection. Got the idea earlier in this thread and made a few modifications to the design to fit my application. I love this thread and get a lot of great ideas.

Haha! How about YOU try it..... Then you won't post ridiculous replies like that, because you will be burned over 90% of your body. You can put a cigarette out in a fuel such as diesel or kerosene, but NOT gasoline! Gasoline emits vapors at any temperature from -45 degrees F. and up. Go strike a match, light a cigarette and videotape it!

You videotaped it? Well send me a link, I would like to see you put a cigarette out in gasoline.

Edit: I just realized you are 16 years old. You can't even go to the store and buy cigarettes.
