I can't take credit for the van set up. The guy I bought it from had already set it up that way, and at one point had 6 other vans set up the exact same way.

Yes used, 2001 E250, gas engine. Filled with parts and tools it still gets about 14-16 MPG in town.

or were you talking of the prisoner transport vehicle.

For this exact reason I make sure primer is tight and secure. I spill it in the truck utility box occasionally and I gag when I open the door.

We carry blowers and gas in all our trucks and vans too. On service calls we blow off hard surfaces as a courtesy. Gas spills occasionally and that isn't very pleasant.

Vans and cements may be a violation of OSHA edicts. You and the solvents are not supposed to be enclosed in the same space.

There is probably an OSHA approved cabinet for vans.

I belive so. The cabinet would have a gasketed door, and a vent through the van floor.
