    Aww was just wondering what plenty more meant sounds like less than full.

    sure learned a lot from the experts on this thread anyway.

    I was green with envy when I watched the video, beautiful wreck and fabulous conditions.

    Wait...whut??? First the mod was basically telling everyone to chill about this guy a few posts back and then poof, he is banned from the board? I'm confused.

    Can someone PM me to inform me what happened here?

    Well, I think your post may be of value to the audience.

    What I've always learnt is:
    Pony: Tank brought along not intended to be used, but to increase the margin of error. Not to be included in gas management calcs.
    Stage: Tank brought along intended to be used. To be included in gas management calcs.

    As far as I can understand, your post supports my take on pony vs stage.

    In this case, I think it's a bit simpler then that. I may be wrong, but simply I dont think he knows how to do gas calcs and planning.

    Based on what I read it sounds like he considered the pony as his reserve. But that is only supposition.
