Pull over to the side of the road away from the fire and away from heavy fuel loads. Stop the vehicle and leave your engine running.

Wind up the windows and close all vents, turn off the air conditioning. Keep low and cover yourself and any exposed skin (use blankets or towels etc.)

Turn on your hazard lights and leave the head and tail lights on and sound your horn periodically.

Conditions inside the car may get very hot but you are protected from radiant heat inside the car and should be safe for the time it takes a bushfire to pass.

Take care that exposed metal, such as door handles, may be very hot to touch.

A petrol tank is extremely unlikely to explode.

An LPG tank may vent with lots of noise and may flame, but will not explode unless exposed to a high level of heat for an extended period of time.
