Mythbusters Blow Up a Propane Tank!

Last updated 7 years ago

You’ve seen the movies.  The action hero lands a couple of well-aimed shots on the gas tank. Boom! You get an explosion of massive proportion. 

Examining a particular scene from the remake of the James Bond film Casino Royale, the Mythbusters decide to conduct a few experiments. The first experiment is lower scale, utilizing only a few different hand guns and a basic propane tank.  The second experiment ups the ante by launching incendiary rounds from a gatling gun. 

Watch the video to find out whether or not a propane tank will explode with the impact of a bullet.
