Blowing into the can is still smarter than sticking in the cab of your truck and turning the heat on, or taking an industrial heat gun to the can.

I haven't done it, but just sayin..........

When I was in the U.S. Army in Wildflecken Germany in 1991 after the Gulf War one of the guys in the headquarters company went missing. His platoon really screwed up and didn't note him missing for 1-2 days. He was a POL (petroleum, oil, lubricants guy) guy who drove a truck pulling a fuel pod. After several days of searching everywhere they looked inside of his fuel pod which has a lid too small for most humans to fit inside and there he was.

He was a really skinny guy who for some reason had gone inside his almost empty fuel pod trailer. The fumes knocked him out before he could escape. He bloated up like a 300 pound guy. They had to drain the fuel pod and wash out the flammable fumes so they could cut him out of the pod. A really stupid way to die.

We all survived Desert Storm with only a few loses only to come home to Germany and lose one of our guys to this. A really sad day.
