WOW, I've been living on the edge for years! On cold winter days or hot summer ones for that matter I rarely shut the car off to re-fuel. From what I have seen 75% of folks around here live as dangerously as me, seems like all of the cars at the pumps are running anymore. I have to go along with Trent here, his approach is logical, a modern running automobile has few if any ignition sources. I also would be more concerned about fumes collecting under the hood of a non running car being ignited by a starter motor or alternator recharging the battery after a start up. I view it as big brother reaching out to help those lacking good judgement skills. And typical of government mandates it is based more on fear than fact.
