Gas Tank

ok well i was hesitant to even post this but if there is ever another stupid guy like me (if thats possible) this can help before it happens to him. i had my cousin do my exhaust for me and he mounted it facing right onto the gas tank and i didnt even notice so when i was going up a long steep grade i smelled melting plastic. i took it all apart and these were the results. emptied a whole tank of gas going 45 miles i was so mad and felt like an idiot. had to be taken home on a trailor
