I do like to use sales papers that jam up my mailbox... and bank statements.

Never criticize a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes... then you're a mile away & you've got their shoes!

Wow, wish I knew that now, shouldn't have been burned by the diesel then. Could have saved $200,000 in medical expenses. Of course diesel burns:


NFPA 704:
Red 2 -- Flammability: Ignites when moderately heated
Blue 1 -- Health Hazard: Slightly hazardous
Yellow 0 -- Reactivity: Normally stable

Diesel has a flash point around 146, I forget the actual ASTM number. So a spark or flame when exposÚd to diesel at 146 will ignite the diesel. Most fires I have seen are above146 degrees. A tanker truck, carrying diesel in LA recently caught fire under an underpass and destroyed it. JP 4 can be ignited by static electricity as can gasoline.

It's not highly flammable when compared to gasoline but it is flammable and classified as such.
