I don't really like the idea of hauling containers of gas in the trunk of a car, but I do it. Do you carry lawn mower gas in the trunk of your LaCrosse and do you take any special precautions?
Some have to think of a better way to carry/haul items that shouldn't be thrown into a truck of a nice automobile.
I need one of these to transport any additions to my plasma tv collection over 55"! Thanks for the link!Some have to think of a better way to carry/haul items that shouldn't be thrown into a truck of a nice automobile. So, go buy you a trailer hitch system will bolt to the rear of the Lacrosse, and when you have that done order you one of these dudes. Problem solved in hauling that expensive gasoline.
I remember that several years ago the national safety office of our federal government attempted to make a video warning people of the dangers of carrying gasoline in containers in the trunk of their vehicles. They used the common plastic containers with the lids screwed on tight. The "victim" car was rammed by another large vehicle expecting that the gasoline would explode. After several unsuccessful attempts without the anticipated conflagration, they resorted to qualified sharpshooter with a rifle to shoot a bullet through the trunk and the moment of impact to get the effect they wanted.This is going to sound like a trite answer, for which I'm sorry (because I'm guessing you have to haul a lawnmower and/or gas for a reason).
I hate gasoline lawnmowers. I hate storing gas in and around the house, and especially in a car. I went electric for lawnmowers years ago, and haven't looked back. Originally a corded one, now a battery one as the battery technology has improved so much.
The thought of a typical cheap red plastic gas can in the sealed trunk of a sedan on a hot day makes me shudder.
