Those Bruce Willis movies where he flips a lit cigarette into the river of gasoline? Doesn't happen. I've tried many times trying to light a campfire. Not saying it wouldn't if the A/F ratio was just right. Years go, they used to use gasoline to put out smoldering cotton and hay bails because water wouldn't penetrate the cotton or hay.

I didn't want to drag it out by posting that we leave a "trail" then light "it"

Last night we had dinner at the Elks Lodge, and we shared a table with a friend, and he told us how close they came the night before. His wife put on a tea kettle, turned on the burner and did not look and see if it came on. When she returned the gas was on and very strong. They use a wood stove for heat, and the only thing that saved them is that it is a good air tight stove, and they were very lucky. They will never assume a stove burner will light again.
