I've never had my pilot light blow out when driving down the road. I do turn it off when at the gas station just to be safe, some people don't though. It doesn't seem to burn much propane. I hope this helps.

Almost all current fridges don't have a pilot light.
They are electronic ignition.
I turn mine on from the moment I leave till the moment I get there.
The problem with waiting till you get to your weekend camping spot it'll just get cold when your ready to leave.

LOL! Why didn't you say "H!"? I would have stopped pumping gas!

Gas fumes sink to the ground as they are heavier than air and it takes a 1.4% concentration to ignite.

Should we doubt Darwins' natural selection, or do we need a little more time!

Not really a pilot light. That's the only flame there. Always travel with mine on. Never went out, or if it did, it relit. Be cautious when refueling.

I do believe Myth Busters debunked that cell phones start fires at gas stations.
