If so do you ground yourself between the pump and the car before you touch the fuel handle?

Static electricity is the main culprit at the pump, which in rare cases can ignite the fuel vapors to cause a flash fire.

Climbing back in your car after starting refueling may seem like a good idea, especially on a chilly day. But the motion of sliding back out of your car seat can create static electricity – and a deadly spark that can ignite the gas fumes when you reach for the nozzle.

This mistake causes half of all static electricity fires, so if you must re-enter the car while the pump is running, ground yourself when you climb out by touching the metal part of your car door.

I usually dress for the season so stay outside until the job is done.

I will get back in my car if it is bitterly cold, and I would never consider grounding myself. Where does this lunacy come from?

Sunny or rain or snow I stay at the pump while waiting for it to fill up.
