Goofs

When Carter inspects his petrol tank after he has run out of petrol, the bullet hole is well above half way up the tank, so there would have been plenty left. The petrol is shown as leaking from the very base of the tank, and the area near the hole is dry as though nothing had leaked from it. See more »
