That seems like a bad idea. Also, I believe that BMW weighs more then 2 tons.

That just looks like all types of dangerous. You would think that it would screw with the engine too, if it couldn't expel exhaust gasses.

Those have been around for at least a decade. Probably more.

Remember the emergency tire inflators where you remove a spark plug, screw the little air hose into the hole, and then run the engine. Those were real safe with carburated engines. Nothing like a tire full of gasoline.
