I'm not advocating risking your life to fuel your car. What exactly is the scientific basis for shutting the car off? I see quite a bit of merit in Trents post even if some of it was tongue in cheek. With splash gaurds, auto shut-offs the pumps are pretty safe. There is not even a possible source of ignition at the rear of my car, running or not. If there is a logical scientific reason, show me. I didn't intend big brother as a scapegoat for doing something foolish. It is undeniable though that many of these rules are based soley on fear or a reation, instead of fact. I do not recall hearing about a vehicle exploding at the pumps in the last 15 years. Is it really a concern?
