You should know that the tank is a Merkava and she was a tank instructor. I am sure that she could teach me some things inside a tank . . .

I'll bet she could! Such as how to break the fingers off some masher's groping paw.

I've always wondered where the gas tank valve is on a tank...how do you stop nasty people from putting stuff in it?

Gas tank valve? Most tanks now are diesel powered.

But they still need to be refueled.

If you are referring to the fuel cell opening, I do believe that they are on the back deck. You would protect them by having guards.

It is a weakness in the protection system, apart from the risk of nasty people getting on the tank, opening the valve and dropping lit matches down it.

Diesel fuel does not ignite like that.

It's the principle. Why have a weakness in a multi-million $ AFV? Speaking of which, how many gallons does a tank take to fill her up?
Weren't the Soviets going to fill up their tanks at West German gas stations while blitzkrieging to the Rhine?

There is usually a cover that you have to lift before you can remove the cap to the fuel cell filler tube. It is not as weak as you think.

Only 500 gallons for the M1 tank, only 385 for the M60 tank.

The Soviets would not have gotten that far, in their initial invasion units, half of their combat vehicles were broken down. On the Bekaa Valley, 1 M60A1 tank fired 9 rounds to destroy 9 Syrian T-72 tanks at a range of 4000 yards or so.

The drinking game version?

ETA: I don't know if I could do that for 7 days. I don't know if I *ever* could have done that 7 days in a row. Maybe in college....nah, not even then.

If you're looking for a historical reference to what a combined arms M1/M3 armored spearhead can do to a poorly equipped / repaired T-62/72 formation, this is a more recent example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_73_Easting

ETA: Tip of the hat to the solid performance of the British first Armoured in the related Battle of Norfolk too.
