It takes quite a "short" to blow an 8 amp fuse. Static electricity cannot do this. I'd check the cigar lighter itself. There is a coil heater spring in there and it can short out. I've also found that the contacts on the fuse holders get corroded. The resistance goes up which causes heat which melts the fuse. Just a thought. Tod
