If a vehicle crashed into a lake with a full tank of gasoline, and the tank
ruptured spilling its contents, how much surface area could gasoline occupy? For
simplicity's sake, I'm wondering how much surface area a gallon of gasoline
could occupy on the surface of the water (how thin can it be spread?), assuming
the lake is quite large.
