a friend of mine had one of his best buddies killed when he got a spark an
empty petrol tank he was working on in a warehouse. almost destroyed
the warehouse too from memory.
whereas it is an old mechanics trick to put out a cigarette in a tin of petrol,
petrol vapour is *extremely* dangerous, and all the more so when in a confined
space. just think of it like you would a bomb...
*any* chance of a spark and the sucker should be filled with water. why? because
that leaves no space for petrol vapour.
