What you need to Know?

It is not uncommon for fires or explosions to occur whilst filling metal or plastic fuel containers in the back of pick up trucks with plastic drop in liners, or for that matter other vehicles e.g. vans, trucks etc. These fires result from the build up from static electricity.

The insulating effect of plastic bed liners, carpeting or rubber matting prevents the static charge generated by fuel flowing into the containers from grounding.

The accidents tend to be very traumatic for the victims as well as their family and friends because they cause intense pain and suffering.
