Post 2 Deloreans in 1885

One thing that confused me about the third movie set in 1885 that the story line revolves round there not being any gas in the delorean. But Doc arrived in 1885 with a delorean (after he was struck by lighting and the time circuits fryed) so what about the gas in that.

Even if the gas was removed for storage in the mine, how come Doc doesnt even mention that he has a delorean. Surely the other delorean could have helped in some way?

Well, if the second DeLorian, or it's fuel, were used in 1885 it would be useless come 1955.

Not really, because in 1955 they had to repair the Delorean, because of the lighting hitting it. So parts or gas could have been used and just replaced in the future.

Although since posting my first post I read that gas couldnt be stored in the gas tank because it rusts in long term storage (the mine)

Re: 2 Deloreans in 1885

think about this if they tempeted to use the other DeLorean they could dispropt the time line. The idea about the rust and the gas tank is a good idea beceuse when the Doc stored the DeLorean I am sure he would have emptied the tank and probly used the fuel for other purpuses and could of disposed of it. Because he never planed on McFly to come back to save him.

Also if they did use the gas it would have been a short movie

i dont think he would have used the gas, he said that he used those coloured logs in his furnace and i dont think that doc is the sort of person to throw away something that could be useful

Re: 2 Deloreans in 1885

Like I mentioned in another thread, the trilogy is filled with inconsistencies and illogical events. The most illogical even occurs in back to the future II where, although marty travels to the future together with jennifer and the doc, he nevertheless, still exists in the future as an older version. If you wanted to be accurate you would have had marty, jennifer, and doc missing for 30 years when they arrive in 2015
