Hi. I'm writing an action story, and I don't know if this situation is possible. Here it is: A guy shoots at a hose/pipe/whatever on the side of a diesel tanker. Fuel sprays out and ignites instantly. He then drives the tanker over many city blocks, showering the lane and all the cars on the left side with fire. The tanker bashes over many smaller cars that get in the way, and the man must lean out the window to shoot tires out of cars in front. He eventually bails, and the tanker becomes a pillar of fire and smoke. The gun must be a revolver, but the fuel type, tanker size, and other details can change to make this happen. 1. Will diesel in a hose or pipe ignite if shot? 2. How many city blocks can someone drive like this? 3. How good is air conditioning to prevent the driver from being cooked in the cab? 4. Basically, what will stop this from working? There is also a human stampede chasing the tanker, and they are crowded on the right side because of the fire trail. The idea is that many blocks go up in flames, and the fleeing lynch mob clog up the streets and hinder the evacuation. 6. How many people, roughly, are needed to jam the streets and get in the way of firetrucks for one block? Thanks.
