I hear what you are saying. I used to think that old iron was the way to go for safety. This video changed all that for me
I am not saying that an explosion is going to occur. What I figure will happen is the roll welded seam or other portion of the tank will breach in the event of a t-bone and spill gas all over the accident scene. 5+ gal. of spilled gas on hot asphalt is not my idea of fun.
