    Actually a cigarette is not a open flame and it will not ignite gas the temperature of the burning section of a lit cigarette is as follows
    Side of the lit portion: 752 deg F
    Middle of the lit portion:1112 deg F)
    These temperatures are theoretically high enough to ignite concentrated petrol vapors however in the case of an open outside, there is an insufficient vapor to air ratio.

    A lit cigarette will NOT ignite a puddle of gasoline.

    If you use a spray bottle to mist gasoline at a cigarette, it still won`t burn.

    Smoking cigarettes might be dumb, but you can`t ignite gasoline with a lit cigarette.

    vapors are concentrated enough if any gas is spilled. Not to mention that smoking is a distraction that makes you more likely to spill gas.

    The Autoignition Temperature of a standard unleaded gasoline can be anywhere from 260 to 460 degrees C. Cigarettes burn around 700 deg C when `pulled`.

    Can it happen? Yeah, it can. Will it happen? Unlikely, there are other factors involved.

    preheat and vaporize the fuel, and we`ll talk about danger while smoking.

    Well, it`s impossible to light gasoline with a lit cigarette. She`s either dumb and didn`t know, or pretty smart by knowing. You need either an open spark, flame or something burning much hotter than a cigarette to ignite a flame. And sorry to say, yes, all those movies where someone throws a cigg into gas to cause a fire... you`re being lied to. :P

    If they don`t ignite gas, ever, under any circumstances, then why do the stations have signs up telling people not to smoke at the pumps. There are even warnings about static electricity. The fumes are easier to ignite. Try it the next time you`re at the station, just make sure someone at a safe distance is getting video.

    "Well, it`s impossible to light gasoline with a lit cigarette."

    It`s perfectly possible to light the vapour. And you get vapour when you fill up; that`s why you`re able to smell the petrol.

    So yes, it`s still dumb.

    lucidexistan- Really, are you being serious? Its all vapours when you pump gas and thats what catches on fire in fuel. Its really hard to light the gas itself but really easy to light concentrated fumes. Learn your s*it before you tell people its not possible then they go out and blow themselfs up.

    Same reason they have signs to turn your car off, and to not use cell phones.

    These things, including smoking, could POSSIBLY cause a fire, but it isn`t likely.

    Unless you`re smoking a really BIG cigar, there will never be enough effect in a cigarette glow to ignite any kind of gas.
    You shouldn`t light the cigarette near the pump though, as the lighter flame is much more "powerful".

    I`m sorry but smoking around petrol like this isn’t going to do poo, I`m sure you`ve all seen myth busters, right? To get the levels needs to even ignite with an open flame would mean spraying petrol all over, and that`s with an open flame. Go back and learn something read the internet on ignition temperatures, please educate your self’s. You`ve seen those "why America is dumb" they should take a picture of your posts.

    Jsatan. The big problem with smoking at a gas pump is gas that has been spilt, not igniting fumes in the air. An ash from the cigarette on to the ground and you will have a flame. Any open flame at the pump is a dumb idea. But I guess somebody who has been educated via mythbusters has things all figured out...

    If your in the military you would be court martial ed for smoking at a fuel dump. The US Navy storage of such at bases are buried under earth. Not even mowers are allowed to cut grass. They only use goats.

    Saying that cigarettes are not hot enough to cause an explosion is not true. Yes you can throw one into a pool of gas. However the fumes meeting, and the right timing of heat from such can come in contact. The result is ugliness. Only a nitwit endangers those around them. It`s explosives period and a matter of timing.

    jesus you think she`s dumb, the comments are worse. a cigarette cannot under any circumstances light petrol. if you through a lit ciggie into a pool of petrol its wont light.ever. unless that pool of petrol was EXTREMLY hot. and a lit cig cant light the fumes either because it is not a naked flame, just a burning ember. and dont question me on this because as dumb as it sounds i have tried to light petrol on fire with a fag and the only times it worked was when the petrol inself was heated to nearly boiling/vaporising.

    Perhaps the reason why smoking around gasoline is not allowed is because they don`t want people LIGHTING cigarettes, using the open flame of a lighter or match.

    MythBusters supports your post. The dropped a lit cigarette into a toilet full of gasoline in an enclosed space and all it did was snuff the cigarette. They even went as far to use Nitro with a lit match and it STILL just barely lit... Gasoline has to be heated or compressed before it can combust with anything but a direct flame.

    What I really love are the people that say, "don`t open/close your car door or talk on your cell phone while fueling. Static from it could cause fumes in the air to explode."
    I`m sorry but when was the last time somebody blew up a gas station because they were talking on the phone or hopping back into their car?

    @HOBYandy I was using myth busters as an example as it seems the average Joe doesn`t listen unless it`s bee on TV. Really spilt? Do you know the hotest thing when driving into a petrol station?
    The flipping manfold followed shortly by performace breaks that have been used. I don`t think for a single minute that a flick of some ash will have any affect, that`s just stupid. Anyway back to education 101 for you, liguid DOES NOT IGNITE, only vapor. I really do question the world when they use "well why do they put up a sign" it`s because you`re so stupid, like do not drink bleach or don`t put your dog in the microwave. I rest my case as this is trying to talk about Darwin to the Pope.

    The fact that people will spend up to $7 for a pack also makes them dumb.

    and to all the commenters who are still determined that a cig can light either the petrol or the fumes by saying "well why is there a no smoking sigh there so", the sign is there so that people will not LIGHT a cigarette at the pumps because that would mean a naked flame shortly followed by a boom so loud it would shake Chuck Norris. end of discuss.

    $7 a pack?? That`s about 9 New Zealand Dollars... Here it costs about $20 a pack or $15us!
    Not to mention a pouch can cost about 45-50 dollars.....

    I hate to rain on the parade, but it takes a spark to ignite. BTW, Thanambular, if you say I stop smoking, there`s a chance I won`t die?

    I work at a gas station, and I can not even begin to guess how many cigarette butts I sweep up around the pumps every day. Let alone people who smoke while pumping...

    I`m pretty sure cigarettes don`t burn hot enough to ignite gasoline fumes... but it`s still pretty stupid to do smoke while pumping gas.

    Here is a tip:

    If the ignition spark from your car doesn`t make a gas station explode, neither will smoking.

    People will relight their cigarettes, folks. Argue all day long about whether a cherry or ash will ignite a pool of gasoline (better yet, go try it)... But people will flick their lighters, and well... as the meme says... boom goes the dynamite.

    Wow, this was really really stupid. This posting was a waste of space. You would have to seriously try to ignite the fumes with your cigg, for their to be any chance at all.

    Actually, a cigarette doesn`t burn hot enough to ignite gasoline, so as long as she lighted it inside the car darwin is not really gonna care much for this one

    A cigarette does burn hot enough to ignite gasoline fumes, especially when you are inhaling. On a cold day it`s not likely to cause a fire because there are less fumes but it can still happen. And isn`t this one of the new Teen Moms?

    with all of the factors involved like wind, temperature, concentration of evaporated fuel, distance of cigarette from fuel source, etc. you probably wouldn`t be able to ignite gasoline like that if you tried. It COULD happen, but your much more likely igniting the gas because of a static charge than like this.

    I didn`t want to post links because I really didn`t give a s*it enough to post it but read on a few different sites that if you haul back on your cigarette while pumping gas there could be a spark from the cigarette enough to light it.. but holy f*ck don`t get so butt hurt about something people. Obviously its not safe, thats why theres warning signs to not smoke so who the f*ck cares if it can or not. Thing is it is possible and the gas station really doesn`t want to have their store blown up because of your dumb a*s.

    "A cigarette has the potential to light a pool of gasoline but just doesn’t have enough sustained heat. Gas ignites between 500 °F and 540 °F, the cigarette at its hottest was between 450 °F and 500 °F but only when it was actually being smoked. An ignition is very improbable." - Mythbusters. HA I think I`ll do this more often as a matter of fact ;-)
