There's a reason why you see warnings on gasoline pumps about placing gasoline containers on the ground when filling them. You can cause a fire if you don't.

All it takes is a little static electricity spark near gasoline fumes to cause an explosion and fire. A container being filled while in a trunk or on a tailgate or pick-up bed isn't properly grounded. This can lead to a static electricity spark that can cause a potentially disastrous fire.

If the person filling the container in the attached video had simply moved the container from the pick-up bed to the ground, this dramatic event would not have happened.
