    How do you fill up in a gas station, considering that you have to perform a cool-down for your turbo? Lalo na when you are going to fill up in one of the stations along the north and south expressways after a high speed drive? Do you park first then proceed to the gas pump after cool-down? Or do you fill up with your engine running? Or perhaps you have another style?

    i fill up while running the engine, although most stations have "turn off engine" signs. IMHO, theres nothing wrong with doing so. Ang stupid ay yung "turn off cellphone" sign! so so stupid :D

    I also leave it running. I just don't fill up near gas powered vehicles. Patawarin niyo na lang ako mga kapatid.

    Pwede naman gumamit ng cellphone sa gasolinahan as long as it does not contact with fuel fumes. So just close your windows.

    Sir O:: Theres this urban legend that a Gas station supposedly blew up because of a guy used a cell while filling up. This is so not true. High frequency radio signals cant cause ignition. But then again, just dont use the cell, no need to turn it off :D


    ***baka may sumabog na gas station diyan mademanda pa ako :mrgreen:

    Pagkakaalam ko, it's the very minute sparks that MAY occur inside a mobile phone that causes the explosions.

    So kailangan may continuity between the spark in the mobile phone with the gas pump. Yung gasoline fumes daw ang nagigigng medium of transport ng spark.

    ako, park muna a few meters from the gas pump, cool down for two minutes with the aircon off, then move to the gas pump without revving the engine too much. fill up with the engine off (sorry, am a stickler for order).

    however, i rarely gas up after a long drive, as i can make it from QC to Tarlac and back on a single tank, with lots of fuel left over. yun lang naman ang regular long trip ko.
