Explosively Bad Design 

Putting gas into the wrong part of a car sounds pretty dumb. However, the design of the 2005 Smart ForTwo is definitely partially to blame for this near-death experience.

“If it’ll make the car explode if you put gas in it, don’t make it look like you can put gas in it” should be one of those tenets of auto design that people get cross-stitched into decorative pillows.

That’s just sound thinking.
