    I always smoke at the gas pump...
    sometimes I get yelled at for it through the loudspeaker,
    or I can see the middle aged gas station employee
    pacing in the store because I'm smoking at the pump.

    I really don't think a cigarette
    (except for in near perfect conditions)
    can ignite gasoline or it's vapors....
    maybe I'm just lucky.

    getting in and out of your car then touching the handle could sometimes cause a spark then a kick ass home made flame thrower. or even using a cell phone while pumping, gas that is.

    To me, it just seems really unlikely that a cigarette cherry
    can cause a spark or even a flame small enough to ignite vapors.
    I've actually had a tin of gasoline before and flicked a cigarette
    into it (just to see) and the cigarette hit and just went out.

    of course it is unlikely, its also unlikely that youll get seriously hurt doing alot of other dangerous shit, but i mean...why test it?

    a gas station completely blew the fuck up in my hometown because of a cigarette.

    I remember reading about a girl that died because the static electricity from her polyester pants set off a spark that ignited the entire pump...and her.

    Damn... I don't really do it to test it. I also don't spank mustangs
    all day long in the work truck to see if there's a cop waiting
    for me up the road.
    If someone with a mustang were to smoke at the pump
    they'd probably blow up.:lick:

    Yeah I smoke at the pump everytime. When people say something about it i usually tell them to shut up before i kill everyone. They suddenly realize that they are acting silly and go about their way. I mean I can press the button down on my lighter and have the stream of gas from it not ignite on the cherry so who knows. I personally don't care and am ready to die at any minute. Hopefully none of you are around when it happens cuz you are coming with me.

    the cigarette is nothing but a coal ..... for gasoline to ignite, it needs an open flame. dummies
