    That does seem redundant.

    My '66 had saddle tanks AND a cab mounted tank when I first bought it. When I am done, it will have a Pinto style rear mounted tank. :panic:

    It appears that it was safe since he moved the gas tank to the front seat.

    During the latter days of its life, my 1969 Bronco had an outboard tank on the passenger side for a fuel tank. The officer simply does not understand proper shade tree standards.

    If the driver hits something, the can will pop and then he is sitting in the middle of a thermobaric weapon.

    I like that he bothered to spend the money on proper fuel line and clamps and then proceeded to slam the hood on the hose and wire the pump up with wire nuts. Seem legit.
