PSA...

Um going to say gas tank ruptured...fire overheat the metal of the gas tank...then BLEVE...did the NOS assist with over pressurizing the fuel tank...maybe

NOS is not flammable...it just adds extra O2 to the fuel ...

When a tank of flammable liquid/or LPG is heated to a point the tank ruptures...BLEVE

Found Nissan Maxima that was blown-up by overheated nitrous bottle. Apparently combination of defective burst-valve along with owner leaving bottle-heater on for 2.5-hrs did it in. Yikes!!!


I had 50-shot kit from NOS way back in '80s in my MKII. Quite hoot when going in straight line!
