Why do you say gas station of anti-static work is important?
Among many major accidents, the main culprit is caused by static electricity, 04 year January one day, a motorcycle driver to the gas station to refuel, was parked beside the measuring machine, and shut down the engine, with the engine key open the oil cover waiting staff cheer for yourself.

Had done a test related experts, with a glass rod in chemical fabric friction under 20, immediately use instrument to measure, the results show that the highest electric volts can reach 1.
In some gas stations, mining, oil field, refinery, gas station etc, the harm of static electricity is much more serious, often can achieve a few kv or tens of thousands of volts, when static electricity spark discharge can also lead to fire and explosion danger, etc.
