I highly doubt it's an explosion. It's not a sealed container; there's no way it could build that much pressure. Certainly not from standard gasoline.

The picture looks fake. I don't mean Photoshop, I mean staged. Look at the edges (and size) of that piece of metal. It doesn't even come close to mating with that hole. There's enough metal there to cover 5 of those holes. Also look at the jagged edges of the hole and the very smooth edge of the piece of metal hanging out. And where's the packing? Something very fishy is going on here.
