Default Be Careful with those Car Storage Bags

Article below describes how two people died from carbon monoxide poisoning while trying to put an old Mercedes into a plastic storage bag.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...thusiasts-die/

It isn't clear in the article what kind of storage bag it was but I've seen a few different ones advertised, some like a large ziploc bag, others more like a car cover with bottom that zips all the way around, or those car capsules that blow up with a small fan. But in any case, seems the moral of the story would be don't try to back in, and perhaps better to just leave the motor off and push it into the bag.

The Merc must have been running really rich or he sat it in it for far too long; it's not as if he had the engine running whilst he had it zipped up.

I never considered that you drive into those things. I do understand not loitering when you have a car running inside a giant Ziploc bag though. This is sad but also a bit of duh.

Too late L, they have probably already bred.
Still, I do feel sorry for them (and their family); what a pointless way to go.
