It tears me up to consider Jerry’s fire loss.Is this the first Pierce

to be lost to alcohol in gasoline? I would like to make my Pierce sedans

safe from tank related failures.What do I look for? Do I have to remove

the tank? I didn’t see anything related to gas tank renewal in the parts


I was on a car tour(60 pre-16 autos)when a T roadster’s gas tank caught

on fire at the lunch stop.Flames were soaring through the top.Eighty-

year-olds were moving like teen-agers and the fire was put out with

conventional extinguishers.

I plan to talk to my fire chief about halon and see what he knows about

the obtainable halon knock-offs.I will also be carrying 2 extinguishers

when practical.
