Please explain why you're statement. I don't think XTZ members care for how you started your post and leaving us with check your machines. If this is really a problem and you know what caused it, then lets hear it.

Thank you

guys i don't know what happened.my wife and our 2 boys decided to go for a ride after dinner.one son is 7 with a raptor 50 and one is 9 with a grizzly 80.we went into a nice trail but the boys were getting stuck so we turned around.we live in the country and drove down the gravel road.i was doing about 40-45kmh(30 ish mph).as we came up on the trail we were going to take i turned the machine about 40 degrees to the right and stopped on the road to check /wait for my boys.my prowler stalled out.i restarted it and turned and looked over my right shoulder.my wife yelled my name and before i got turned around there was a loud boom and we were engulfed in flames.i could not see her through the flames.she screamed my name and i figured she could not get unbuckled.i reached through the flames and felt where she was and found her seat belt released it and shoved her out.i screamed for her to get to the ditch and drop.i had myself out and padded out the fire on my jacket and saw my wife was still on fire.i grabbed her and got her down in the ditch where there was water and she rolled around.i grabbed her and the boys and ran about 3 telephone pole lengths away.by thus time some guys in a truck stopped and called 911. the ambulance took her to the hospital to check her for burns and treat her for shock.she was wearing a thick wool jacket that is now burned,that being said the cops and fire chirf figure that jacket and her helmet saved her.the panel where the fuel fill neck is all bent out on the bottom.the rest of the panel is straight.i think the fuel tank exploded.if that was from the heat of the fire wouldn't the whole panel be bent and distorted.my wife and i do not smoke or drink so a butt didn't start it.a few days earlier i had used the winch to drag out a couple of small trees and the code po635 came up.i called the local cat dealer and they said it was a low voltage/power steering code.the next day i went out and it started right away and there was no code.my local dealer does not want to see my machine or have anything to do with trying to help me figure out what happened.i am not trying to satrt crap i would just hate to hear of thus happening to someone else.my wife and i are DAM lucky to have gotten out of thus alive let alone a small burn on my left forearm and some burnt hair.any ideas would be greatly appreciated.my cell number is 1-250-301-5558 i have a bit of a video of the fire but cannot convert it to the computer,so if you think i am b.sing send me a text and u can see the fire for yourself.
