I was filling up the car tonight after the kids soccer game. In front of us was a SUV with an occupant who was sitting right next to a pump smoking away. Yes there were signs everywhere. But the ashes kept getting flicked out the window. Right toward the white little boxes that contain GAS.
It’s amazing to watch this in action. Since I and the boys were so close to it, I’m glad to see nothing happened. But, it really makes you wonder what some people are thinking. Here is a good example:
Also some do’s and don’t around gasoline from Purdue University:
1. Do not smoke where gasoline is handled or stored. Smoking around gasoline
causes more fires than static electricity does.
2. Always keep gasoline out of the reach of children.
3. It is best to handle gasoline outdoors for proper ventilation.
4. Keep gasoline containers tightly closed and handle them gently to avoid spills.
5. Do not mix even a small amount of gasoline with kerosene or diesel fuel.
6. Do not use gasoline in kerosene heaters or lamps.
7. Store gasoline in a building separate from the house or place of occupancy,
such as a shed or garage.
8. Put gasoline in a small engine (such as a lawn mower) only when the engine
and attachments are COOL.
Overall it seems pretty dumb. Be safe and think about it.
