I am sure that most states have the same rule/law regarding "Open
Flames" in fuel refueling stations. In Michigan (per their website) here is what they have to say about
it: See # 5
As for what is the definition of an "Open Flame", that may depend on what each state's definition is, the federal definition or the NFPA's (National Fire Protection Association) definition. Since the flame is on the outside of the RV, it is exposed to the outside elements (fumes).... your call. I run on electric.
