    So with these frequent occurrences, why these situations not being investigated to find out the cause of the fires or even see if there is a common denominator among them. Maybe like incorrectly installed sound system or all of them have a mechanic in common or even purchased parts from the same location. Our detective force sucks!!!

    Fancy expensive rims on the latest one. I put it to you that there was a poorly wired sound system that shorted or this is yet another victim of "bush mechanics"

    It's not car insurance alone. The Karabs started it when they burnt down their store for money too. They are the rinkleaders of these things. Don't learn from them.

      The only sensible comment here. The stuff coming out the pump is slowly eroding your fuel system.
