Geez! It is too bad he could not fuel his car up from some place safe like home charging an EV!
Hope he is okay.

Graham, you are onto something.
I think this should be "Reasons to fill up at home"
Apparently... the first video with the tire... happened in the Czech Republic and the guy was okay except for some bad bruises.
Heard it through the grape vine!
And I'm sure you've heard that women are way more likely to end up in a gas station fire?? Apparently it's because they get in and out of the car when the car is filling up, causing more static which sparks when they then take out the nozzle.

On a related note, Chelsea Sexton says the are over 250,000 gasoline fires I don't have a linkable page from the DOT yet but it's a nice stat to pull out when EV safety is the subject.

These are some real good videos i wont be using my phone again at the gas stations thats for sure, Does anyone know why phones make fires though?
I was told once that it was more often than not dropt phones sparking as batteries fall out or get stood on. I think it's more likely for the same reason as airlines ask you to turn of electrical equipment during take off and landing... So you'll pay more attention to the job at hand.
VFX... great thread!
