Bring back the service station attendant and these things won't happen. "Filler 'er up with ethyl, check the tires and don't forget the windshield."

I have heard that this is not uncommon in lambo's especially if they have been tuned to fireball out the exhaust.

So the minivan driver will just buy the guy a new Lambo. No harm, no foul. Everybody goes home happy.

Every time I see someone do this, I just wonder how. How in the world are you that dumb? Also stay outside your car while you fuel up. Just do that, OK? If it's cold wear a coat, OK?

sadly... it would happen more often. Gas Station Attendant is such low edumicashin work that they would only be able to hire HS dropouts... or rapper wannabees who arrive drunk/high (or not at all).

I've seen all of the same videos, and knew what you were talking about. It was easy to assume that that was the case in this story...which I assumed. Having read the story, it turned out otherwise. Your post seems to assume that was the cause of the fire.
