FYI when you're pumping gas

Don't get back into your car. After watching this on Discovery Channel you can create enough static charge to then ignite the fumes coming out of the pump near the car.

If this does happen DO NOT take the pump out of the car (even though this is what most people do).

Another safety tip on Ferrari Forum. I wouldn't even try to get the ABC extinguisher from the car. Just tell the station workers ASAP.

LOL, I should read everything. Rosso already covered it on the same show I'm watching. Damn how much I missed out when I was in Japan. Lots! TV I couldn't understand.
