I agree, although I thought it was Intrinsically safe All of the electronic gear in the Weapons Magazines on the ships is this. E.G. Lighting, speakers etc.

IIRC someone drove a lorry to a petrol station full to the brim in the trailor with mobile phones. Then they rang all of them at once, can you guess what happened........

....Absolutely nothing. It is just more of this health and safety cr4p that causes things like this being implemented.

I think this is a good idea, although i have never owned a diesel car, I have filled up the works vehicles which are diesel and not had a problem myself but as has been said. It can be an easy mistake, especially if you have too much on your mind at that moment.
