Yea truck was full loaded with avgas big twin steering 8x4 FYH for a couple of weeks we weren’t allowed to do basically any welding in the workshop as it was full while we worked on it think it had 18t of fuel on board. Driver reckons he sucked up a bit of the seat cover when it went off stopped and blocked up the only bridge on and off an island
