    Link: Methane Gas Cylinder + Car + Explosion - Cause of the explosion is unknown and no one was hurt. I wouldn`t consider a car a good storage area for a gas cylinder.

    Here in Europe, we have cars running
    * on liquified gas (LPG = propane/butane) for more than thirty years (mainly in the Netherlands)
    * on compressed natural gas (CNG = compressed methane) for the last ten years (mostly buses and some cars, mainly tests)

    Picture shows no signs of burning, only (sic) physical burst

    Perhaps a gas trapezoid or octagonal ellipsoid, but definitely not a cylinder.

    Obviously exceeded the manufacturer`s suggested maximum pressure on his LPG tank.
    That, and left a candle burning on his dash.

    This`ll be a common sight when hydrogen cars are mass produced.
