safe for what? if a cop finds it, you may be answering a lot of questions for the next 19 hours or so, about all the other nuts out there setting suspicous gasoline fires in the last seven years. I got pulled over in a remote section of some woods one night. I saw the police car come up behind my car, I walked back to meet them, and the cop said," we are looking for some guy lighting fires with gasoline, what are you doing up here?" " I said, then you are not going to like this, I have a five gallon can of gas behind the drivers seat (my car had no gas gauge, so I kept a couple of gallons, since 35 dollar cars have no trunk key, I put the gas on the floor behind drivers seat)
Lucky for me, I had no lighter of any kind or any matches. as one cop started to open the gas cap on the can, the other one stood there smoking a cigarette, as soon as I saw that, I started backing up in a hurry, they laughed at that , and decided I was not the mad man lighting fires. About seven years later something similar came up, and so did that field interrogation report on that incident. ahh computers, gotta love them eh?
