Give it your best stots everyone
Thats the same response the little Plastic guy gave when he was kicked off site. Unfortunaley the boss is a jobsworth and said "the sign says no phones"Heh, the "mobile phone will cause fuel fumes to explode" myth...
It's 100% myth. Mythbusters tried it & failed to get a spark, and I've used my phone many of a time around fuel, and I'm still here. You need a good wool sweater, or need to be moving around allot in you car seat to get enough static electricity to spark it too. Thats why you're supposed to close your car door when fueling, so your hand touching the metal "bonds", or in more common terms, equalizes the static charge between you & the car.All service stations have no phone signs and I could never work out how a phone could cause a big enough spark to ignite a spark ?
