Continuity mistake: When Pappagallo has agreed to let Max drive the escape truck and the tanker is prepared to go, Warrior Woman is seen in her perch on top. In the very next shot (distance change) she is seen in the background just climbing to the top of the tanker. (Pan and scan misses this detail.)
Continuity mistake: The one shot that shows Max's car approaching and colliding with the rear of the landau coupe in the opening chase scene is reversed. The car has one door mirror on the driver's side (right) but here we see the mirror on the left, as is the car's driver. The blower's belt is on the right side when it should be on the left.
Other mistake: The climactic chase scene at the end of the movie has us believe that the tanker being driven by Max is full of "precious fuel", which is why The Humongous and his goons are desperately trying to halt it. But during one shot, the ending of the movie is spoiled because red dirt is seen spilling from one of the pipes leading to the tank. The climax of the movie, of course, is when Max discovers that he was used as a decoy hauling dirt, not fuel. But when the dirt is seen spewing from the tanker in an earlier shot, that surprise is ruined.
Factual error: Mad Max turns on his engine blower with a switch. The blower in Max's car is driven by a belt attached to the engine itself. The only way to turn it off is to turn off the engine. It is possible to put the blower on an electric motor, but turning it off would simply shut off the oxygen and fuel, both of which are pretty important in an internal-combustion engine.
