Question Re: Why not just do this??

Ok, here is the premise of the movie.. the fuel line was ripped and all the gas leaked out therefore making driving the car impossible.

REMBEMBER, the car Marty drove back in IS not the one that is buried in the mine.

In 1885 there are 2 Delorians now. The ONE that Doc Arrived in and the ONE that Marty arrived in. Why not just take the fuel line and gas out of the buried car and put them on Marty's car??

Sure saves a lot of time that way. I've always wondered about that. When Marty arrived, did the car Doc buried disappear??

Any one got thoughts on this matter???

hmmm...

lets just say it is one of the loopholes in the movie. the writer never did think about it I guess. maybe it is because the doc did not want to touch the buried car because if he took the gas line from the buried car, then when marty found the car in the future, he probably would not be able to arrive at 1885. but hmm... then again he might. the doc probably thought that if he did that, he would be didrupting the space time continium. hey, they already disrupted a lot y'know.

Re: Why not just do this??

If DOC took the fuel line of the car in 1855 then the car marti found in 1955 would not have a full line there for he would not be able to travel back to 1855 to save the Doc. And also it would mack the move much shorter!

I may be wrong! i dont know... JASE. (T-10000)

Question Time quandaries

Time quandaries can really play tricks with your mind. I never thought of this solution, but I have thought that Doc is a Scientist. Why does he not just find some crude oil and distill his own gas?

Re: Why not just do this??

why can't doc and marty take the fuel from the car that doc
arrived in???

some would say"then marty can't drive back to 1885
to save doc"

well in 1955 doc and marty find that the car is out of gas
and they refill it .with gas from the 50's.

easy solution.......maybe not
i also agree with someone else that said they don't want to
mess with the space time continuem.

so what are some ones elses thoughts one the matter???

do u agree with me??

Wink 1950's Gas in the DeLorean

I think this would not work because the DeLorean only uses UNLEADED gas.

Re: Why not just do this??

Here's what I posted in the "Great, But..." thread...

You know, Unregistered may have a point about the Two DeLoreans part.

Where DID the first one go? I mean, Doc HAD to get there SOMEHOW. Maybe it was burried Further in the tunnel. That's what I think. Obviously, Marty parked His car close to the front of the cave. The first one (Docs) was boarded up Further in the tunnel. Marty would have looked but the Bear scared him out. If THAT's the explanation, WHY didn't Doc just bring THAT one back with them? Leave the dead one behind.. take the couple day old one instead.

Re: Why not just do this??

He couldn't have taken the one he had buried because the time circuits were damaged. He'd have to transfer the stuff the 1955 Doc put on the car to enable to travel back in time again to the one he had buried and he probably didn't have the tools to do that.

Re: Why not just do this??

Doc is a briliant a scientist, and he didn't make it right away. Looking at the age of his children I would say it took him 4-5 years. But anyway he had the parts of the second delorian.

answer!

because if doc were to make a mistake and break something there would be a paradox and plus you never put a car in storage without draining the gas tank first

it wasnt flight worthy when he first made the train into a time machine. he went to the future before he saw marty at present time. that is how it had the hover ability like the future cars

Re: Why not just do this??

Doc wrote the letter not knowing he would get shot and told Marty NOT to come back to get him but go directly to 1985.

They don't use the car from the mine because then the car wouldn't be there for Marty to dig up in 1955.

They don't even use the fuel because he might damage the delorean, or he drained the fuel to put in storage.

The explanation for Doc being able to build the time train is one that he gives himself... "You can't keep a good scientist down!"
