Jorge Siqueira de Souza, 45, appears to be chatting to the woman in the passenger seat, identified as Erica de Lima Thiengo Siqueira, 27, when the car erupts.She died instantly in the ferocious blast in the Sao Goncalo neighbourhood...

He suffered serious injuries and is in intensive care at the Alberto Torres State Hospital, in the same neighbourhood.

Damn, looks like the tank failed. That's what 3600 psi will do, assuming Brazil has the same PSI filling standard as the USA.

Wait until they start putting hydrogen in vehicles. Look out.

Google is saying VW had a recall on the tanks for some of their CNG vehicles. I wonder what pressure those tanks are filled to. Either way, even low pressures like a shop compressor will be messy if it fails catastrophically like that.

I'll take 2 please.

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

Yes, but if it saves just one milkvetch plant that blows across the border...think of the environment!
