It takes a lot more than you would think to light gasoline on fire, 'specially when it's "uncompressed"... Try sticking the spark plug of anything next to the spark plug hole while its cranking over and see what happens. Nothing. I've gotten it to go boom ONCE- after dumpming about a cup of gasoline down the sparg plug hole. The resulting fireball was so cool my 16 yr old self had to try it agian, couldnt ever get it to work again though.

VERY cool idea though, will have to member that one!
