    just imagine if all the elephants in the world converged on DC. There would be enough gas there in one day, to supply the U.S. for 2 weeks.

    Yea and they also spill a lot of gas on pit road. I can't believe the tree hugger's haven't tried stopping this killer sport.....

    I can't believe that this thread has made it way to the 3rd page. I have read all the reponses from my first post ROTFLMAO. Now If cows had some sort air tight helmet with a tube connected to collect the gas and ahhhh never mind just stupid monday morning thinking I need more sleep :dizzy: :dizzy:

    spill gas? if you arent any good. i have been a gasman for 4 years and i have spilt gas a grand total of twice. and those 2 times were the first and second times. there is a easy fix to that problem. fire the crappy gasman and get a good one

    Technically speaking the gas man does not spill the gas. It overflows in to the catch can. Its the driver who spills the gas as when he pulls out of the pits at a a high rate of speed the fuels sloshes around the tank and some will find its way intot he over flow tube then onto pit road......

    well then smart ass, you gas it and see how well you do the first time. it takes experince. not a degree. that was the point i was tring to get across. thanks for showing us how much you dont know about the subject.

    the gas does flow back into the catch can and over flow there as well. but in the overflow valve there is a one way flap that is supposed to hinder the loss of fuel. it helps but its not a perfect system.

    the gasman will spill the gas if the catchcan is not installed before the plugs in. the air in the tank wont have anywhere to go and it will not go in the fuel cell. not it is crutial that he is there before you.
    the reason you wont see a 4 tire stop and 2 cans of fuel get anyfaster than 13 to 14 seconds is because it takes approx 7 seconds to dump 11 gallons of fuel in the car. it wont get any faster unless they 1. change the design of the dump can 2. only take 2 tires and 1 can. 3. cheat and make the can dump faster by changing it somehow.
