Yes sir!.

A cracked distributor cap and the faulty Maruti Zen car, which was dripping fuel. Both a perfect combination for disaster to happen.

Somehow did not notice, did a complete run to my office, to jayanagar and while i was just heading back home after a 60 km run that day, this fateful incident happened.

An autorikshaw guy helped me as a friendly angel in dousing the ever growing flame. I had over 20 litres of petrol in the fuel tank which is just behind the engine. aaaaghhhh, i still get jitters if i think about that horrid incident.

I would have lost my Bus, if not for that Autoricksaw guy.

Wow! That must have been scary. Glad to hear that you're ok and the flames were doused quickly.

Thats bad but not as bad as I imagined

You can for sure get that beauty back to pristine condition
