We're a 3 but no cookies baking.

I feel safer because I'm in the Diesel Truck lane. They run their engines, refers, etc..

I follow the federal law that is posted, no open flames and shut off engine.

In my lowly opinion, the wording of the poll is slanted towards those that leave everything running. Kind of "when did you stop beating your wife?"

This will skew the results.

Do you consider the fridge which is enclosed and the access on the opposite side of the rig as the gas fill is, to be considered open flame?

I'd like to know what "Federal" laws apply. Now I know there are state, county, city ordinances regarding gas stations, but I don't know of a Federal law. Can someone point me to the Federal link.

Almost all gas stations have "No Smoking" signs, but in many areas those signs are placed by the gasoline distributor or station operator. It's not a federal law. In many cases it is not even a local ordnance. There is no federal law regarding cell phone operations, but service stations can set their own standards for better safety.

Don't get me wrong. I do not advocate smoking while filling up at a gas station.

Some food for thought about running or not running an engine when filling up. So there you stand with the nozzle in your gas tank, providing a good ground for static electricity, and in pulls Joe The Farmer with his very old car. He rolls up to the opposite side of your pump with the clank-ity-clank running and heaven know what type of electrical spark is being generated.

Or, Joe The Farmer is already there, you pull in, start pumping your gas across from him and he gets in and spends 30 seconds cranking to get "Betsy" started.

Regarding smoking, you are standing there filling up, in pulls Teenager Bob, windows down, cigarette hanging from mouth, takes a long drag, gets out, throws cigarette on ground and stomps on it. He knows he is not supposed to smoke filling up and is keeping with in the guidelines of the no-smoking sign.

Where's the logic?
