If you're referring to gas tanks on cars, aim just in front of whichever rear wheel you're looking at and shoot. Once you hit the tank gas will visibly leak out and you can shoot it.

It can be tricky with cars, unlike the big trucks who's gas tanks are below each door.

its pretty cool. you should a cars gas tanks it leaks and leaves a trail and then you shoot it and starts the go on fire and then lits everything on fire that is on that gas trail. I have had multiple cars explode that way.

Also aiming at the muffler/exhaust works too.

 

I notice when shooting under the vehicle at the exhaust,fuel will leak and then a second shot gets it going.

I made a video to show the best location to shoot to make it leak, shared this on another post as well, seems theres a lot of confusion as to exactly where to hit, though i didnt know about the exhust mentioned above.

I don't think I've ever hit the gas tank on a vehicle.

 

Also, do the large jet engines on planes have enough thrust to blow over cars?

lol. Yeah, dude. If you want to experience a trick. Get a shotgun, get close to the car gas tank and shoot at it. It might take four or five shots.

Thanks for the tip. That's so weird though. I remember playing with Michael who has the regular pump action shotgun modified with a silencer, ala No Country for Old Men, and I remember shooting the back of a car so many times that the ass end was silver with bullet holes before it finally exploded. Yet other times I'd shoot around the gas tank, exhaust, undercarriage once or twice and the gas would be a spillin'. I can only guess they made it a little difficult for online, as you know if there was a gas tank with Insta-Explosion like in last gen GTA, people would be raging hard.

You bumped a thread that has nothing to do with Online.
