Trivia Mel Gibson only had sixteen lines of dialogue in the entire film, and two of them were: "I only came for the gasoline." See more »
Goofs Max is carrying 4 fuel cans back to the big rig (4 cans @ 5 lbs per can empty = 20 lbs). He is using a metal bar to carry the cans (~10 lbs). He requested diesel fuel and high-octane gasoline. The cans look to be 5 gallon containers. Diesel fuel weighs 7 lbs per gallon (3 cans @ 35 lbs per = 105 lbs). Gasoline weighs 6 lbs per gallon (1 can @ 30 lbs). The load Max is trying to carry is around 160 lbs. It isn't realistic that Max would be able to left, carry or shift this load on his shoulder with the ease displayed in the film. See more »

Quotes [first lines]
Narrator: My life fades. The vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos... ruined dreams... this wasted land. But most of all, I remember The Road Warrior. The man we called "Max." To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time... when the world was powered by the black fuel... and the desert sprouted great cities of pipe and steel. Gone now... swept away. For reasons long forgotten, two mighty warrior tribes went to war, and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel they were nothing. They'd built a house of straw. The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked. But nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. The cities exploded. A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men. On the roads it was a white line nightmare. Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice. And in this maelstrom of decay, ordinary men were battered and smashed... men like Max... the warrior Max. In the roar of an engine, he lost everything... and became a shell of a man... a burnt-out, desolate man, a man haunted by the demons of his past, a man who wandered out into the wasteland. And it was here, in this blighted place, that he learned to live again.
