Cars in Venezuela erupt into flames, fuel quality in question

VENEZUELAN taxi driver Jose Faria’s burnt face and arms are wrapped in bandages. His vehicle was one of dozens to spontaneously burst into flames in Maracaibo, Venezuela, in an alarming phenomenon blamed on poor fuel quality. 

“It all happened so quickly,” the 42-year-old told AFP from his bed of the day, last week, he thought he might die.
