Yepi read all the time of gas stations blowing up because of someones rv fridge or gen set running .
Your more likely to cause a issue with a static shock then with the other

I've never seen gas ignite when just spilled on a hot surface . if it did my motorcycle and thousand others would be charcoal .A spark yes , open flame hits gasoline vapor yes .but gas vapor is heaver then air and most rv fidges are a few feet off the ground

Don't know about Forester but the Georgetowns have an ignition interlock that locks out fridge ignition for about 15 minutes when ignition is shut off. Used for refueling purposes. Forester may be the same. Of course, if the fridge is a residential type, not an issue.
