Our meddling government is burdening gas stations with onerous regulations like automatic shut-off values.

This might be the only news for which The Blaze is a valid source.

Well, to be honest, the guy was in a panic, since THERE WAS A FIRE AT A GAS STATION!!!

If the attendant had hit the emergency gas shutoff as he was running to put the fire out that car might not have done any damage other than dropping the pump on the ground.
 
2014-07-25 05:37:46 PM  
Turn off your pump AND put out your smoke.
 
2014-07-25 05:46:08 PM  
No, no it isn't, Subby.

You let go of the nozzle and head toward the store.  There is an emergency stop at every station that kills ALL power to the island, the dispensers and the submersible turbine pumps in the tanks in the ground.

Spend enough time with the English as a spoken language kids and you hear some interesting discussions:

-O'man
-uh huh, so where are you from?
-O'man
-what, man? WHERE ARE YOU FROM?!!
-O'man. Next to Yeah-man!!

Even if the nozzle had caught on fire, its the FUMES that burn, not the liquid. There is no way that fire would have gotten down to the tanks. As long as gas was spewing out of the hose, there is no danger of the underground tank detonating. And yes, the dipshiat clerk should have slapped the kill switch for the pumps as soon as he saw the fire, not run out with a dry chem trying to put it out. Hit the kill switch, THEN attack the fire with the ABC.

Except that's generally a requirement of Western nations, whereas this took place in Oman.  I don't know for sure that they don't require easy-access gas shutoff buttons there, but my guess is that they don't, and even if they did that enforcement is somewhat lax.

While that's amusing on first glance, it looks like he's using a high-pressure sprayer to get something particularly stubborn off of the vehicle.  Cow shiat, for example, sticks to vehicles remarkably well, and unless the storm is particularly violent rain is only going to get off some of the big chunks, leaving a fine patina of bovine feces across your car's exterior which, despite being stuck there like glue, will smear all over your clothing the minute you so much as lightly brush up against it.

Sorry to ruin your meme.

"Attempts by the gas station attendant to put out the fire were pointless," the video description states.

...so gas stations in Oman don't have a BIG FARKING RED BUTTON that stops the pumps?

/class C underground storage tank operator, knows about those things
//although in my case the tank is to feed a generator - we have no gas pumps

"The emergency button to cut off fuel supply to all pumps was activated and the fire was successfully put out using DCP fire extinguishers which were on site," Faisal Al Shanfari - General Manager of HR, Administration, Corporate Affairs, Customer Service, Procurement and HSSE at Oman Oil Marketing Company (omanoil), said.

Aha, they DO have big farking red buttons!
