    I've said this before and I'll say it again... Imagine when the batteries on the bench today are out there powering our cars for 2,000 miles between charges and we look back at that time when you used sit there, no safelty equipment, whilst a guy poured explosive fuel from an open pipe into our cars... just inches from us... one spark and the vapour would instantly ignite... insane!

    Insurance records show that gas cars self ignite in the USA about once every 96 seconds. That's going up as people try to get out of lease agreements, but then I guess that's not SELF igniting.

    And we think nothing of it....
