    My guess is the driver taking his 30 at the pumps spontaneously combusted after his third roller dog of the morning.

    Sho hate it for those other drivers just trying to get fuel.

    BOTH drivers are STUPID...

    Drivers 1 wasn't getting fuel. (Per reports) he was getting ready to leave and parked in the fuel island and went inside.
    Driver 2 got fuel and went inside leaving his truck in the fuel island...

    IF driver 1 had pulled up the fire would just had been the 2 trucks.... if driver 2 had pulled up and driver 1 didn't driver 2's truck would have been fine....

    Basically 2 stupid drivers... Pilot should sue the companies for damage and loss of income

    Unless its vaporized then it makes gasoline look like a kids toy.

    Battery voltage would be my largest concern. Or high psi leak.

    Anyone who thinks these electric vehicle won't produce one hell of fire is dead wrong to. Id take that fuel fire over the battery fire any day.

    Years ago I was home and had my truck at the local Cat House. The shop boss called me and says when I get a chance, to come down. The mechanic had crawled under the truck and noticed a bad starter cable. After they got it off it was apparent it could have become a dead short at any time. I was surprised it even made it into the shop. That was a good mechanic to notice it up between the frame and the starter. I had not noticed it and I did most of my own maintenance and prided myself on catching things before failure.

    That's when I started carrying large set of bolt cutters.
