This information was taken from a "SHELL NEWS" magazine dated 1942.

One gallon of gasoline will drive your car--18 miles
An equivalent amount of TNT----------------- 6 miles.
An " " amount of natural glycerine 3 miles.
An " " amount of dynamite-------------2 1/2 miles.
An " " amount of black powder---------1.7 miles.
Bottom line,respect gasoline.Most people have no idea what the power of a gallon of gasoline is capable of let alone 9000 gallons of the typical CA.tanker load. shocked
