They did! To get anything close they had to seriously alter the cell phone.

We also travel with the fridge on propane. The other thing to consider is how far away the fridge is from the actual pump.

Yeah. My concern was never fumes around the flame, but rather some accidental gas spraying into the frig vent.

I usually fill at an outer island with the frig vent 30 ft from the pumps. Chevy fill is on drivers ide and frig is on rear wall of trailer.

Mine is always on. I have a Diesel engine and will go thru where the 18 wheelers. More space and room, bigger hose to fill faster. Real nice when filling a 100 gallons drag up tank.

My opinion with the diesel is that all the refer trailers run their cooler off of diesel. Those don't turn off unless out of fuel.

Diesel is not as flammable as gas. Have seen a cig put out in diesel. Heard gas will do the same. It takes the spark to light the fumes.

As OC says the vapor is heavier than air and sinks the wind will carry and reduce the concentration.

That's my thoughts and experience. Each to his own.
