    Epic Fail Today

    Filled up with petrol (bout £50) only for a lot of it to suddenly empty onto the forecourt. Station evacuated and closed and fire brigade called out

    Any likely causes or just a rupured tank? Seemed Ok until i filled it up

    is this the first time you've filled it? sounds like the tanks gave way as you say, i had this with a corsa i bought once, filled it up and it was upto around 50quid which i thought was funny as the corsa has a small tank it was all over the floor.....

    must say tho no one seemed too bothered they just put some sand over it and didnt bother callin fire brigade

    thats nothing i work next to a petrol station and i was once watching a bloke filling up and it started over flowing(it should click but oviously didnt)and while he was watching the meter, its pissing out all over his legs,shoes,all over the car and he still didnt realise what was going on until we had to point out that he was flooding the hole forcourt,so we made put sand down and sweep it up lol, the worst bit was he was covered it petrol and he stunk of it lol

    bet you wont fill it again, have a look underneath theres most likely a hole in the tank
