Of course my mother/father accompanies me.

You have a student's driver license?  If not, that's still not allowed (legally).

AFAIK you have to be 18 to be issued a students drivers license anyway. And even if you have one you still have to drive while supervised.

yup, but by law, it's illegal to do so... and having your folks around doesn't really make the situation any better but in fact it makes it even worse.  wait until the time is right na lang for everybody's safety.

ut AFAIK, mas maraming safety features ang LPG tank na ginagamit sa mga kotse kesa sa bahay (thicker casing and more safety valves). Halos lahat ng taxi na nasakyan ko dito sa Japan, LPG ang gamit, hindi mo mahahalata sa hitsura, or hatak.

Last month lang nung umuwi ako, may nakasabay ako sa Petron Commonwealth habang nag-papachange-oil, yung isang Toyota taxi naman nagpapa-undercoat.nang binuksan yung trunk, naka-LPG, pero hindi naman gaano nakain yung luggage space, halos ganun pa rin ang laki.

actually LPG are used as additives for trucks/SUV/pickups (diesel engines) much like NOS to give boost but cheaper..

LPG Truck Explosion

Quote
UPDATE) Death toll in LPG truck explosion now over 20
Cops rule incident an ‘accident’
By Thea Alberto, Hernan P. dela Cruz
INQUIRER.net, Inquirer
Last updated 03:11pm (Mla time) 02/02/2007


PAGADIAN CITY, Philippines -- At least 22 persons, including a three-year old boy, were killed and at least 10 others injured when dozens of tanks of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) being hauled by a truck exploded in Zamboanga del Sur late Friday morning, officials said.
Chief Superintendent Jaime Caringal, Mindanao regional police director, immediately ruled the incident which happened past 11 a.m. in Sitio (sub-village) Diorok, Barangay (village) Lacupayan, Tigbao, “an accident.”
Caringal said they were still trying to get an accurate count but acknowledged that the final toll could still rise as emergency workers continued to retrieve bodies and check the different hospitals where casualties were rushed.
Major Gary Lachica, executive officer of the Army's 53rd Infantry Battalion, said troops who responded to the incident estimated “dozens” may have been killed and that the injury count was still mounting.
Most of the victims were aboard an RS Transit passenger bus from Imelda town on its way here.
Based on initial reports he received, Lachica said the truck was hauling the LPG from here to Zamboanga City when it turned turtle along the highway. The accident caused a traffic jam but the driver of the bus still tried to inch his way past the overturned truck.
"It was at this moment that the explosions occurred," Lachica said.
However, Caringal said other accounts from drivers in of other vehicles said the rear end of the truck suddenly caught fire as it traversed the highway.
Most of the victims sustained burns and wounds from flying debris. There were reports that a number of the dead were torn apart by the force of the explosion.

Another poster (mbiege) followed up with some info on how dangerous and volatile LPG is:

Quote
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION/PROPERTIES:
Appearance:Rapidly evaporating liquid or gas with rotten cabbage - like smell.
Initial Boiling Point:- 42 to 0 deg C.
Melting Point:Not applicable
Specific Gravity:0.49 to 0.57 (liquid)
Solubility in Water: Very slight
Vapour Pressure at 20 Deg C:107 to 730 kpag
Flash Point:-104 to 60 deg C
Lower Flammability Limit:1.9 % in air
Upper Flammability Limit:9.5 % in air
Vapour density:1.5 to 2.0 air = 1%
Volatiles:100 %
OTHER PROPERTIES:Evaporation Rate:Rapid
Auto ignition Point:482 to 5820 deg C

From this Wikipedia site, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_point:
Petrol:

    * Flash point: >-45 °C (-49 °F)
    * Autoignition temperature: 246 °C (475 °F)

Diesel:

    * Flash point: >62 °C (144 °F)
    * Autoignition temperature: 210 °C (410 °F)

LPG

    * Flash point: -104 to 60 deg C
    * Autoignition Point: 482 to 5820 deg C

IMO the government should have a second look at the legality of LPG fueled vehicles. With such a broad flashpoint it is very dangerous to be lugging about a tank of LPG. Couple that with the fact that these tanks are typically highly pressurized and you have a recipe for disaster.

Sabi dun sa tsikot.com, CO2 cylinders daw hindi LPG?
