    I saw these photos of a Challenger R/T fire. No cause was given- electrical? fuel leak?

    High Pressure fuel injection needs perfect sealing compared to low pressure carburation. Just a simple o-ring failure and Up In Flames it goes.

    And not all o-rings are petroleum rated (I had a leak with one not realizing that it wasn't but fortunately smelled the gas leak early)!
