    better turn off your engine when filling up with gasoline...

    very volatile kasi ang gasoline and a little spark somewhere is all that's needed to ignite it

    i turn off my engine and my cell phone too, whenever i take our car for a refill at the station.

    share ko lang an article i have read some time ago re: static that cause explosions during gas refill.

    gasoline fumes are so dangerous with open flames or even sparks. this is why even cellphones are advised to be turned off at the gas station because of the tiny sparks they produce.

    by statistics, men drivers are often the ones who have the habit of getting off the car during a gas refill. women drivers usually stay inside the car.

    the advise for anyone who gets off the vehicle during a refill, is for him/her to touch the metal part of the door. this is to transfer the charge that causes static sparks to the body of the car.

    the static charge is usually caused by the fabric of our car seats and carpets. while we are in a dry cool climate inside the car, our body rubs against this fabric and we acquire a charge (forgot if its negative or positive). such charge we acquire produces a spark if we happen to touch another body/metal of opposite charge. thus, if such spark happened near the fumes of the gasoline, BOOM! :cry:

    I always thought na standard operating procedure ang
    magpatay muna ng makina habang nagpapa-gas.
    I am really surprised from the posts on this thread na
    meron palang di gumagawa nun...
    Now you guys know better....:D
