    How much solvent did this guy use? :rolleyes:
    I mean surely to blow up a flat you're talking buckets of the stuff.

    Unless it formed a highly flammable gas inside the mattress?

    If the stuff is highly explosive it my not take a huge amount. I would say a 4lb container (about 1 gallon) of smokeless power (modern gunpowder) would do much more damage that that.

    Tyre solvent? Likely story. I'm thinking beans and sauerkraut are the true culprits.
