Fowler Associates, Inc. is one of the leading consulting firm in electrostatics. One of our top concerns is the increasing frequency of auto refueling fires.

We have been tracking this increasing danger through the ESD Journal, a website published by Fowler Associates.

Steve Fowler, President of Fowler Associates has been interviewed by Dateline, Inside Edition, Good Morning, America, CNN, and several ABC, CBS, & NBC affiliates. Our work has led to more warnings at the pump and hopefully less injuries to the refueling public.



The videos of our burning cars at Gaston Fire College were used in an Episode of the MythBusters.




What Does A Refueling Fire Look Like?

The following are streanming videos which show how easily a fuel port fire goes out when the dispensing pump is shut off and the inferno that results from pulling the nozzle out during a refueling fire. Please read Unsafe Act and let's be careful out there.
