KUALA LUMPUR: A man cheated death when an NGV gas cylinder in the booth of his car exploded at a petrol station in Taman Billion, Cheras, here.
The explosion occurred at 10.45pm on Sunday, when the owner of the car identified as Yong was filling up the cylinder.
''I was filling up the cylinder when I felt the car shaking badly. I immediately pulled out the hose,” the 45-year-old said, adding that seconds later, the car exploded.
It is learnt that he also had a cooking gas cylinder in the trunk.

And today's news, from the New Straints Times this time, there is a fatality:
A trader died after his van exploded while he was filling up his modified NGV tank at the petrol station at Jalan Datuk Seri Md Zin Abd Ghani, Batu Berendam, here, on Friday night.
I'm not sure what the problem is but there are some personal observations:
1)NGV pressure is great, at about 3000PSI, compared to the normal cooking gas tank which is a hundred times less.
2) With all our Malaysian education and the "Tidak Apa" attitude, a lot of people thought they could save even further money when it comes to DIY on almost anything. So, here's the lesson of "Penny Wise Pounds Foolish": If you pur NGV into any cylniders (cooking gas tanks, acetlynes, etc.) other than a good NGV tank, you will die. If you do not die, your passengers will die. There is a reason why these tanks are so expensive, OK?
3) There will be other technology to help wean off our addiction to Petrol, but they will be cheaper if more people get them. Such as Hybrid cars, electric cars, bio-fuel, water, LPG and so on. And if you notice, the higher the petrol price increases, the more your ROI finishes. Hee hee hee hee.
