Why Is It So Dangerous To Start A Fire With Gasoline?
It’s about the Vapors.
On every gas can we sell, we put the following information:
VAPORS CAN EXPLODE
VAPORS CAN EXPLODE WHEN IGNITED BY A FLAME OR SPARK FROM MANY FEET AWAY
Why do we warn our customers about vapors?
A quick discussion of Flash Point will tell why.
The science of very dangerous fuels and their vapors.
The flash point of a volatile material is the lowest temperature at which it can vaporize to form an ignitable mixture in air.
In Simple Terms:
The flash point of a fuel is the lowest temperature the fuel will produce vapors that can burn or explode. At this flash point temperature and above, the fuels will evaporate and constantly release dangerous vapors.
Looking at the flash points it is glaringly apparent that gasoline will produce and release combustible vapors at all temperatures at and above -45°F. (-45ºF happens to be the lowest winter temperature at the North Pole.) So– in our everyday environment, gasoline is always producing combustible vapors. Other common fuels have to be at a higher than normal temperatures to do so.
To make matters worse, gasoline vapors are almost invisible. (Sometimes you can see their shadows in sunlight.) These vapors are heavier than air and they “flow” along the ground. So, they can concentrate far away from the liquid gasoline source. If ignited, these vapors will burn or explode.
Gasoline continually releases invisible & highly combustible vapors. They may be surrounding you and others as you pour. Any ignition source will cause these vapors to burn or explode. Gasoline contains tremendous energy and is made for one purpose– as an engine fuel.
Never use gasoline to start or accelerate a fire. It is far too dangerous.
Never use gasoline to start or accelerate a fire. Always keep fuel cans out of reach of children.
