From the FJ forums.

So my time almost came to an end this morning... im very lucky to be alive.

First of all, GO HUG YOUR WIFE/HUBBY and tell them you love them.

i had an acetylene bottle in my truck, the valve was bumped so slightly and over night the truck filled with the gas. i noticed the smell, and opened the doors to air out the truck. i drove the truck out of the garage to get some more air movement. i went to roll the pass side window down and as soon as i touched the power windows. BAM. with me in the truck. i lost all hearing out of my right ear and got a scratch on the back of my head. all things considering, im alive.

so now ive got the question out to toyota about a 2012 TT. 125 to canada only, 15 in standard. i want a standard...

pictures tell 1000 words.

dont take any minutes or seconds you have for granted... it may be your last...

peace everyone,
evan...

That guy IS lucky to walk away. I have seen the aftermath of leaking acetylene overnight in an auto repair shop. Turned on lights and BOOM...leveled the shop and killed two men.

Shit just append,

let me imagine,...you go with your charcoal gaz tank to get it full, and back to home, you go to the bathroom, forget the tank in your car, and at the morning, go to job, but never arrive.

that can be possible too,...better be safe,.. than sorry!

I've seen the effects of a leaking acetylene tank first hand. Was in a car, too. Guy left his tank in the trunk of his Cadillac at the store while he ran in to grab something. Came out, hit the clicker to pop the trunk and BOOM. The had to drag the Cadi away. Blew out windows in the cars around him.

People don't understand just how volatile this stuff is. Acetylene has to be mixed with acetone to keep it stable. Without the acetone, the acetylene will self-ignite, even under the pressure of the cylinder. This stuff is dangerous.
