I know its a dumb question but..I dunno..I keep trying to do it. Rockstar said if you hit the gas tank, it leaves a trail of gasoline to shoot at. But either I'm stupid or somethings wrong, because I can't find the gas tank on MOST cars. Like..I crashed my car into some other dudes car in the middle of the desert. And I wanted to do a "Leave no evidence" thing and I tried to blow up the car just by shooting at it. Couldn't do it. Is there some specific part i have to shoot at or..What? I remember doing it once, but it was with a garbage truck..It had that huge gas tank that was pretty out in the open.

shoot at the engine with a shotgun... or steal one, get your petrol can, draw a circle around it, shoot the circle, then wait a few seconds.

Its possible to blow up cars just by shooting them, failing that. Sticky bomb or grenade (personally haven't used a grenade but I'm sure it will do the trick) The gas tanks are usually on the side of the car above the rear wheel, I'm not sure if they are always on one side or not. I once got a mini cooper looking car and shot the gas tank for lols, Started leaking gas and drove it for a bit before it just died. Was pretty cool.

the "trail of gasoline" only appears in scripted scenes.

If you're having trouble shooting the car and making it leak gas, just shoot randomly around the tires (In the lower parts) and it'll start leaking.

Either that, or get on a high place, jump off, pratfall onto it and it'll blow you sky high.

No it doesn't, you can do it whenever you want.

Incorrect, you can actually shoot around the tires and have it leak gasoline, only problem is, I never see the filling thing, but spraying and praying randomly around the back tires works fine.

Oh ok! I was just wondering why this isn't working. Will give it a try again as soon as I can play. Thanks.
