    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.

    So, you guys who work out of vans.... don't the primer fumes get to you?

    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.
