With petrol you’re likely to get an explosion, meaning the heat mostly goes upwards away from the gas cylinders. Diesel would produce a much more concentrated fire. But the real problem’s gas cylinders don’t explode. They’re designed not to. The top plug blows out under sufficient pressure, realising the contents in a jet. To get a decent bang you need an explosive initiator to split the cylinders. You’ll then get an expanding cloud of very cold droplets, well below their flashpoint. It’s only when they’ve warmed & vaporised, well mixed with oxygen, they ignite. Basic fuel/air bomb. Jonathan September 24, 2019 at 11:07 am And we still don’t know how it caught fire……. Ducky McDuckface September 24, 2019 at 11:14 am BiS; handy to know, thanks. Ok, it is the Telegraph, but, apparently an employee of a bar noticed a gas canister on the back seat of the car. The car had also been “doused” in diesel. Personally, I would have thought that the first thing you’d notice was the stink. But it is Paris, I suppose.

Why that should be is a mystery. bloke in spain September 24, 2019 at 1:17 pm @David Ward But that’s not anywhere near an explosion. It’s just gas burning. And note, the flames stay close to the ground. So the “gas” at that point is actually a cold liquid. The contents of just one gas cylinder properly exploding would have punched screen out of the following car at that distance. A 15kg butane cylinder has about the energy density of 60kg of TNT. A lorry load would level an area several hundred metres in circumference..
