    To be more precise, it is not only with fuel tank, but also other parts - this problem is accumulation of few "not so correct" things which can lead to fire...

    Someone could get hurt or worse in or around one of these Škoda's.

    Also arent Fabia R5 owners and especially their insurer's worried ?

    Should have thrown a bag of absorbant on the spilled fuel, though I guess it might be wise to leave any bags of white powder behind if returning equipment to Europe in case the bags are substituted for white powders from the americas.

    Does Benito have a spare Evo X in the shed?

    Curious, thanks.

    Pluto, I meant completely burnt out to the point where they had to scrap the chassis. I'm sure others caught fire.

    Thanks KKS, so I'll have to update my mental database. Arai went off the road though. Not much info that I can find on the other one.

    The Skodas seem more of a case of "spontaneous" combustion. No crash, no sudden grass fire or broken wheel that tear off a brake line or something like that.

    I was there. When it happened there was no chance to do anything. Before it happened also not much, as with such hot car and big leak not much can be done to prevent fire. If fire brigade could come faster then maybe more could be saved...
