Important safety tip!

Static electricity + gasoline = bad. Nuff said.

It's crazy how people will set gas on fire by setting a gas can on a
bed-liner or something, and how some people smoke and hold a sig in their hand while pouring gas and never set it on fire.

Wow! That was cool (or maybe really hot) .

It probably caught fire because she went back into the car, slid off the seat (most likely synthetic cloth material) thereby charging herself. Used to happen to me all the time with one car I had. Everytime I got out of it to close the door I would get zapped (especially in cool dry weather in the winter). Luckily it never happened while refuelling!

Nothing unusual here in Canada. In the cold winters (-44 C) people get static all the time. Last year there were a lot of accidents at fuel pumps and one really bad one where the whole thing exploded. Static is definitely a problem here in the winter. I get it all the time. Just make sure that when you get out of your car you touch metal first to get rid of it before you touch the fuel pump.
