Safety Alert!

Here are some reasons why we don’t allow cell phones in
operating areas, propylene oxide handling and storage area, propane, gas and diesel refueling areas.
The Shell Oil Company recently issued a warning after three incidents in which mobile phones (cell phones) ignited fumes during fueling operations
In the first case, the phone was placed on the car’s trunk
lid during fueling; it rang and the ensuing fire destroyed
the car and the gasoline pump.
In the second, an individual suffered severe burns
to their face when fumes ignited as they answered
a call while refueling their car!
And in the third, an individual suffered burns to the
thigh and groin as fumes ignited when the phone,
which was in their pocket, rang while they
were fueling their car.

You should know that: Mobile Phones can ignite fuel
or fumes
Mobile phones that light up when switched on or when
they ring release enough energy to provide a spark
for ignition
Mobile phones should not be used in filling stations,
or when fueling lawn mowers, boat, etc.

Mobile phones should not be used, or should be turned

off, around other materials that generate flammable
or explosive fumes or dust, (I.e., solvents, chemicals,
gases, grain dust, etc…)
TO sum it up, here are the
Four Rules for Safe Refueling:

1) Turn off engine

2) Don’t smoke

3) Don’t use your cell phone – leave it
inside the vehicle or turn it off
[Based on the government’s ability
to turn on cell phones anytime,
best left in the vehicle.]

4) Don’t re-enter your vehicle during fueling.


Bob Renkes of Petroleum Equipment Institute is
working on a campaign to try and make people
aware of fires as a result of ‘static electricity’ at
gas pumps. His company has researched 150
cases of these fires.
His results were very surprising:
1) Out of 150 cases, almost all of them were women.
2) Almost all cases involved the person getting back in
their vehicle while the nozzle was still pumping gas.
When finished, they went back to pull the nozzle out
and the fire started, as a result of static.
3) Most had on rubber-soled shoes.
4) Most men never get back in their vehicle until
completely finished. This is why they are seldom
involved in these types of fires.
5) Don’t ever use cell phones when pumping gas
6) It is the vapors that come out of the gas that cause
the fire, when connected with static charges.
7) There were 29 fires where the vehicle was re-entered
and the nozzle was touched during refueling from
a variety of makes and models. Some resulted in
extensive damage to the vehicle, to the station,
and to the customer.
8) Seventeen fires occurred before, during or immediately
after the gas cap was removed and before fueling began.
Mr. Renkes stresses to NEVER get back into your vehicle
while filling it with gas. If you absolutely HAVE to get in
your vehicle while the gas is pumping, make sure you
get out, close the door TOUCHING THE METAL,
before you ever pull the nozzle out. This way the
static from your body will be discharged before
you ever remove the nozzle.

As I mentioned earlier, The Petroleum Equipment Institute,
along with several other companies now, are really trying
to make the public aware of this danger.

I ask you to please send this information to ALL your
family and friends, especially those who have kids in
the car with them while pumping gas. If this were to
happen to them, they may not be able to get the
children out in time.
Thanks for passing this along

Beware Hole Under Door Lock

I have come across a case that happened with one of my

close acquaintances.. as regards car theft.. be careful and take immediate remedial action..

Keep checking the care regularly from all such occurrings.. Happy driving… 

Hole Under Door Lock

Wednesday, I approached my car from the passenger side to place
my computer bag in the front passenger seat.

As I reached to open the door I noticed there was a hole right
under my door handle.

My first thought was, “someone has shot the car !”

I began to think about it and inspect it a little closer and
the “light” slowly began to dawn.

I phoned a friend who owns a body shop and asked if he had any
vehicles with damage to the doors that looked like a bullet hole.

“Yes, I see it all the time. Thieves have a punch and place it
right under the door handle, knock a hole through, reach in and
unlock it, just as if they have a key. No alarms, broken glass,
or anything.”

I then placed a call to my insurance agent and explained it to
him. I was puzzled that they left my GPS and all other belongings.

Here is where it gets scary !

“Oh no, he said, they want the break-in to be so subtle that you
don’t even realize it. They look at your GPS to see where “home”
is. Or check your address from Insurance and Registration documants in your glove box.

Now they know what you drive, go to your home, and if your
vehicle isn’t there they assume you aren’t, and break into your home.”

He said they will even leave a purse or wallet and only take one
or two credit cards. By the time you realize there has been a
theft, they may have already had a couple of days or more to
use them.

(I didn’t realize my situation for two full days!)

They even give you the courtesy of re-locking your doors for you.

Periodically, walk around your car, especially after you park
in a shopping center or other large parking area.

Report thefts immediately….your bank w/missing check numbers,
your credit card agencies, police, and insurance companies, etc.

Below is picture of what the hole looks like.


Hole Under Door Lock 

One would have to look pretty darn close to notice a hole like that. If the hole was on the passenger side I would never see. 


Lots of best wishes
