आने वाले दिनों में तापमान में वृद्धि होना तय है, इसलिए अपने वाहन में पेट्रोल अधिकतम सीमा तक ना भरवायें । यह ईंधन टैंक में विस्फोट का कारण बन सकता है । कृपया आप अपने वाहन में आधा टैंक ही ईंधन भरवायें और एयर के लिए जगह रखें । इस हफ्ते 5 विस्फोट दुर्घटनाओं की वजह, अधिकतम पेट्रोल भरने से हुआ है ।

कृपया पेट्रोल टंकी को दिन मे एक बार खोल कर अंदर बन रही गेस को बाहर निकल दे ।

Our Analysis – The above message informs that If petrol tank is filled completely with Petrol then the tanker might explode during summer season. As per our understanding, for petrol tank to explode or catch fire requires three factors – fuel, heat and air in correct ratio. Inside the tank there is limited quantity of air and for explosion, the temperature should be almost 247 - 280 centigrade, which will burn human also. Practically, its not possible, unless and until some fire is directly thrown at the petrol tank. For petrol to explode it should be in vapour state.

The petrol tank only explodes in movies and not in real life.

Conclusion – It is not true to say that if a petrol tank is full in summer season then it can explode. In summer also temperature never reaches 247 centigrade. It is fake message.
