Can Cell Phones Ignite Gasoline Vapors?

Larkfellow As asked on Discovery Channel (685 comments)

This question was also asked by the Myth Busters on the Discovery channel, in episode 2 And their discoveries came to the same conclusions as the PEI, that cell phones do not causes explosions, but that static electricity, especially that built up by entering and exiting the vehical while pumping up, was the cause of many gas station fires.
