Thought I was going to need a blow torch
Got to the gas station after physical therapy on my shoulder. These bad weather/icy road trips in my truck add up. Rehab is 25 miles from my house. I live 10 miles from nowhere, lol.
Hopped out of the truck and walked back to my tank cover. For just a moment I had totally not thought it through. We got about 3/4" of ice. Tank cover was coated in said ice. A blow torch would have been quick in more ways than one. 💥
Tools were in the back of the truck so I got the next best thing. I have a ball hitch lock in the door well. Grabbed the u-shaped part and gently tapped around the cover in a circle until I had removed all the ice.
The tank cover is on the driver side. Here is what the truck looked like before I left home.
