  • If the car is literally "running" or moving and getting gas pumped in it at the same time (which I doubt is even possible), I don't know what would happen.
  • If the car is at a standstill like at a gas station but the engine is still running and you're pumping gas into it, I'm 99.9% sure you wouldn't die from it, and I'm at least 95% sure nothing would even happen to you or the car. But I'm not sure if it depends on the car, cause I've tried this with a 1990 Honda Accord and 1996 Ford Aerostar almost all the time.

Why does your 2000 Camry idle rough while pumping gas into the tank?

It is because you are leaving your car running while pumping gas into it, if you didn't notice how everyone else at the gas station turns their car off, you should, it is dangerous to do so and you should discontinue no matter what car it is you are fueling or whether it is acting right or not about it. their is a chance you could blow your car up, and the gas station along with it...

What are the odds of dying on the same day as a parent?

This question does not have a definitive answer as it entirely depends on the circumstances. If you and a parent are in a crashing plane or in a severe car crash, like with a semi or train, the odds could easily be 80 to 100 percent you'll both die on the same day. If you and a parent have been diagnosed with incurable brain cancer & you both have exactly 1 month to live, the odds of dying on the exact same day are still unknown but could be relatively high, maybe 60 - 80 percent.. The odds of you and a parent just randomly dying without warning on the same day are so low it pretty much wouldn't happen.
