This is a video tutorial explaining about the possible reasons why the usage of a mobile phone can be dangerous in a fuel station.

Theoretically the mobile phone is capable of making a fire in gas station, but practically ?
What about the electric field put out by the phone a possible reason for fire ?
Or is it the static electricity the reason behind the danger.

Please watch the full video and learn the technical facts and drop your feedback.

    Yeah my brother does that he watch phone at a gas station

    Thanks for your informative video

    only by phone designed to explode, like that Samsung phone. .. note7

    how many volts is generally used on cellphone? 12V or 9V?

    Cell phones can trigger an explosion at gas stations IF it’s duct taped to a hand grenade with its safety pin removed.

    Nice explanation👍

  12. Randy Smith on April 15, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    It is VAPORS that ignite !! Vapors off of liquid ignite, not the liquid !!

  13. Akshat Jaiswal on April 15, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    very good explanation

  14. Akhil Sivanand on April 15, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    mobile phones don’t cause explosion .It’s static energy that responsible for the sparks occur in petrol stations

    My next science project

  16. origionalwinja on April 15, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    the correct answer is NO… they can not. mythbusters proved it

  17. at44411 on April 15, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    Ok… so dont open or close the door of the car … its metal on metal!!!
    Dont start any engine or use radio, players .. 50 m of gas station …

    ( I was ironic… for the retards)

    This dude, Jose, is such an ASS. He is so confused. Firstly, this ass says its is possible for a cell phone to set off a fire, because there have been reports, but then says it cannot happen. He explains that the reports are all incorrect. Then, he says that the electromagnet field of a ringing cellphone can interfere with a heart monitor, but not start a fire. So.. why did he mention it? If someone on a cell phone can crash a plane, then all terrorists would have to do is use their phones at the same time. More BULLSHIT information.
    Then, he confirms that ALL gas station fires were caused by STATIC ELECTRICITY. So… now that we know that STATIC ELECTRICITY is the culprit, why did this fool say that the cell phones can cause a fires? Why study science and Physics and not understand the subjects? How can any sensible person know the facts, but still ignore or distort them? He could never be a juror on any case in court. He would see the evidence and still ignore it.
    Readers… take it from me, a Mech Eng…. nobody sitting in his car – windows wound up – can EVER, EVER start any fire at a gas pump.
    Another principle to know is COMBUSTION. For combustion to occur, there must be three elements: Fuel, oxygen and a spark. The trick is the ratio of oxygen (air) to fuel. This is set out in the STOICHIOMETRIC MIXTURE for combustion to occur. Combustion can take place with as little as one part of fuel to 20 parts of air, 20:1, all the way up to 6:1. The ideal is 14.7:1. Inside a vehicle at the fuel pump, there will NEVER be enough fuel vapors to achieve a 20:1 ratio. Inside a car, its more like millions to one ratio. For combustion to occur, you would have to be overwhelmed by the SMELL of gasoline. So… in other words, if it CANNOT happen, why did this fool say it can? I just do not understand such people who parade themselves as scientists or well educated but utter pure nonsense.
    Lastly, since STATIC ELECTRICITY is the culprit, we must know something about it. My high school Physics teacher brought in a Van de Graaff which makes static electricity. It was a great class and we did learn much about that type of electricity. Static electricity is easily generated by certain fabrics rubbing each other, but a very important element is the HUMIDITY. In Temperate countries, especially in the winter, the humidity is extremely low, or, in other words, the air is quite dry. This is ideal for the generation of Static Electricity. This does not occur in the Tropics. So… a person in a Temperate country, getting in and out of his vehicle, can easily generate static electricity and become charged. Upon reaching for the gas nozzle, just when his hand is a few millimeters away, a spark jumps from his hand to the pump and can start a fire; not an explosion (for an explosion to occur, there must be a high concentration of accelerant or a confined / compressed space).
    This nonsense about cell phones causing fires and explosions ought to be stopped as science has already shown it CANNOT HAPPEN; especially while sitting in a car with the windows up.
    BTW… gas station attendants insist that the car be shut off, but the vehicle behind waiting for fuel has its engine on…. DUH

    Great explanation video. Wish more ignoramouses out there would watch it. I work in a petrol station & find it annoying when people A) Use their phones on the forcourt & then B) Ignore continuous requests to stop or, at least leave the forecourt area.

  20. Dtech world on April 15, 2020 at 3:41 pm

    it’s not theoretically proof but real practical also. happen this thing I see my naked eyes….. petrol and cell phones make explosion….

    Why does petrol vapour burns quickly than liquid petrol ?

    This is busted by mythbusters

  25. Renjith Shenoi on April 15, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    great..good presentation

  26. sp royals on April 15, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Nope, more likely static from a person or clothing
