    I guess we've all flooded our vans when filling our tanks, right? Well Tuffers took plonkery to a new level tonight. I dropped a torch in my tank :laugh:. I was filling my tank and I decided to turn on the torch which is magnetic and stuck to the roof above the fill hole to see how full the tank was. As I turned it on it plopped into the tank :eek:. Me panicking stuck my hand in the hole as quick as a flash, but in my haste I managed to knock it further into the tank and behind the furthest baffle. I'm now running round in circles trying to think how the hell I'm going to get the torch out. Meanwhile the torch is still shining brightly in the tank. Tuffers is in panic mode. I get hold of my CLX-4 with a brush on it and waffle it about in the tank. No joy, as the torch is round a corner. My hands are going numb by this stage and the bloody torch is still shining. Feck it, I come inside and light a ciggy. Smoke that and try again with the pole. I swirl it about and manage to drag it to me. Dunk hand in and fish it out. Panic over :D

    I do stuff like that every day so it's normal. A neon lit tank would be a cool van feature though...

    At least its still on, that way you don't need another torch to find it. :D
