So I'm riding to work this morning(5:30am) along condomine st in manlyvale and start smelling petrol... a lot of the stuff not just a whiff... I'm thinking if it's the bike I shouldn't really be smelling it since the wind should blow it out behind me before it gets ni the helmet... It's not smoke... it's definitely raw petrol. It clears a bit after a while and i continue along burnt bridge creek deviation until i hit the lights on sydney rd... then it hits me again and this time it's strong as hell like i'm in some outback community with lots of time on my hands. I look at the car in front and see what looks like someone's turned on a tap on full flow coming out from under the car... oh wtf never seen anything like it... series 5 BMW with litres and litres of petrol spilling out from underneath it. The driver happy as pie takes off at speed.... So I think to myself this can't be terribly safe lets try and flag this tool down to tell him his car is causing a bit of a road hazard... Start beeping my horn, and flashing my high beams(guy remains completely oblivious) all the way down the road to the spit, all the way over past the speed camera and i lose him around the bends as he floors it and i slow down to go around the bends in the wet with this clown throwing fuel down in my path... I eventually catch him on the straight all the way on military road after he turns right past that big traffic light at the big jewellers store... pull up next to him holding down the horn and waving at him to pull over and cut the engine... He gets the hint, pulls over into a side street, winds down his window when i tell him his fuel tank is busted open and he's dumping fuel like a jumbo about to land... his reply *surprise on face* "really?" Yeh really you tool... you thought someone threw fuel down all over the road while you were driving along and didn't think to check your own car? sigh. So if anyone was wondering why mosman smells like petrol this morning... this is why. I called the fire brigade when i got to work but the sleepy yawning guy on the phone said "it's probably all evaporated by now, thanks for calling" lol.
