When the nozzle nozzle from the fuel tank opening and Safety message to consumers. With the winter months come many challenges, from inclement weather to static electricity. While static electricity may be a minor annoyance when it attacks your hair and clothing, it can add up to major problems at the gas pump. In recent years, gas stations in Missouri and neighboring states have experienced an increase in fires caused by static elec- tricity. Fortunately, none of them has resulted in fatalities, but officials with the Missouri Department of Agriculture are encourag- ing motorist to be cautious when fueling their vehicles. "The cold, dry air of winter, combined with fabric friction caused by getting in and out of your car, creates the potential for a static electric discharge that can ignite flammable gasoline vapors released during fueling," said John Albert, an inves- tigator with the department's Petroleum, Propane and Anhydrous Ammonia Program. Many of the recent service station fires have been traced back to the way in which motorists fuel their vehicles, Albert said. In most cases, motorists get out of their -cars, place the gasoline nozzle in the fuel tank, begin fueling and get back into their kicks off, motorists exit their cars, reach for the gas nozzle and create a static spark that ignites the flammable vapors released during fueling. To prevent the risk of static fires at the gas pump, Albert recommends taking the following safety precautions: Always turn off your car's engine. Be sure to close your door behind you when getting out at the pump By touching the metal portion of the door, you ground yourself and discharge any built up static electricity This should also prevent gaso- line vapors from entering your vehicle. Remove the nozzle from the pump and place it in the fuel tank. When the nozzle is activated and the fueling begins, either latch the nozzle open or manually hold it open during the fueling process. If at all possible, don't get back in your car. Stay near the nozzle (three or four feet away) to observe and control the fueling process. If you must get back in your vehi- cle, always ground yourself by touching the metal portion of the vehicle away from the area where vapors are being expelled. When the pump shuts off, touch your vehicle again in an area well away from the fuel tank opening to discharge any built up static electricity. Then remove the place it back onto the pump. If a static fire occurs, don't try to remove the nozzle from the fuel tank. Instead, quickly evacuate anyone in the vehicle. Flip the pump's emergency shut- off switch if it is readily and safely accessi- ble and summon help from the service sta- tion attendant and the fire department. Avoid using cell phones. Electronic devices, such as cell phones, have the potential of creating an ignition source. Never allow children to dispense fuel into a vehicle. Never fill portable gasoline containers in a vehicle or in the bed ,of a truck. Remove portable containers from the vehi- cle and place them on the ground before fueling.
