No brainer, yet people do this all of the time.
i cant listen to the noise. why did it ignite?
Had his car on and talking on his cell phone. Two big static conductors
EDIT: Ha, beat me
Last night I got gas, with the car running, while talking on my phone, smoking a marl., drinking a fifth of JD, and wearing a wool skull cap. Besides my DUI, the he only thing I got was a full tank of gas, and the phone number of some hot chic filling her tank next to me. :mask:
No way a cell phone does that, more likely he got a static charge from sliding out of his car and then discharged it when he reached for his gas tank.
THey did the cell phone shock setting car on fire thing on mythbusters before. It was proved Plausible but not confirmed.
