Shooting a gas tank with a rifle



"...a complicated fuel/air setup with the fuel being dispersed by the high explosive ammonium chlorate. The ammonium chlorate, or tannerite exploding powder as it is sometimes sold, is hit with the bullet. This shockwave disperses and aerosolizes the gasoline. A meter or two away there are candles burning. These acted to ignite the fuel/air explosion."

That's not a gas tank. That's a complicated fuel/air setup with the fuel being dispersed by the high explosive ammonium chlorate.
