It's not safe? There's no guarantee that a decent ground exists between
container and the ground, other than the gasoline nozzle. Filling a
container with gasoline generates a substantial static charge. If that
charge is dissipated by a spark from the container to the nozzle you get a
nice fire. That's not an idle concern; it happens fairly regularly.
