You probably see it posted on the pumps, not to use your cell phone while pumping gas, but how many of you actually obey those warnings?

No, there's no confirmed cases of a cell phone creating a condition that could ignite fuel vapor. If you're talking about a phone battery overheating, that can happen when you left it in the car...but so can your car battery...but USE of a cellphone has never been recorded to have caused fuel vapor to ignite. http://www.snopes.com/autos/hazards/gasvapor.asp

So there's no worry about being the "next statistic." If you are, then unhook your vehicle battery when you get gas.
