    That's why those with French and German diesels don't park on long grass, or even pull over onto grassed rural shoulders..

    It will take a while for the ute men to learn. It isn't only particle filters - I have seen two cars destroyed by their cat converters igniting grass. They hadn't been stopped more than a couple of minutes.

    Yet another reason not to drive cars with Cat converters

    The only cat converters on my 404 are the wheels. Work quite well on cats.

    Good to give this more publicity and be aware of potential problems.

    Bad enough to have natural lightning caused fires, than to have vehicle caused fires and then the threat of deliberately lit terror motivated summer fires, though I reckon Farmers will deal out harsh "shotgun" justice to miscreants that try to do that.

    Thanks for the link.

    Ah that "grass" now that would probably send you crazy too, in a smoke addled drug distorted looking glass

    If that was your "bent" of course.
