Look hard. See how many possible bad outcomes you can come up with from this gem posted up on There I Fixed It. When I got to 12 explosion/fire laced choose-your-own-adventure endings, I had to post it.

Seriously, don’t ever do this. The glorious fireball that is the result of bungee straps letting go or, say, clipping a hydrant, is almost visible in the picture. We understand about not having the cash to replace a gas tank, but surely a better spot could be found to mount it up. I envision the other side has a 50 cal. autocannon slung low. You know, A-Team style.

Plus, that’s an F-150 with a V8. I’m guessing that five-gallon bad boy gives that truck about a 35-mile range.

Gas Tank’s on The Left, Right? [thereifixedit]

    One shouldn’t park that close to a fire hydrant; but in this case it may be a good idea.

    Actually, the external auxilliary fuel tank was a factory option for that model year.

    As you know, over the years, Ford made a lot of special models, like the Shelby Mustang. If you watch the Barret-Jackson Auctions, you’d realize this is actually a rare 1980 Ford F-150 “Wedco” edition.

    Worth a fortune …

    Why so low? The better to siphon yours with, my dear! Dirtbags indeed!

    With this ingenuity, there must be a secondary tank on the right side of the bed. 70 mile range easy!

    Makes a perfect companion to those vehicles with rags for gas filler plugs (wicks).

  6. Eddie says:

    What about the level of the “auxillary” gas tank. Can the gas pump actually get the gas from this gas can into the system?

    Don’t worry guys! That external fuel pod is mounted on an old roller skate, so it rolls alongside just fine!

    Mike Foley +1 my homie.

    Wait a second, I think that’s my friends pick-up truck

    don’t trucks like this come with a nice well ventilated storage area on the back end? aka: the bed?
