Over on UKGSer, some have speculated that the problem is caused by moisture, or by some kind of electronic emissions at gas stations...but everyone seems to be just guessing.
No problem just wear a tin foil pyramid hat when gassing up and vex those pesky electronic emissions!
Unless they are emitted by 'Black Helicopters'!
