That breakaway did not function properly and do its job. There was spray when it disconnected, then more spray could be seen as the video was ending. The job of the breakaway is to stop ALL fuel from escaping. This happens several times a year at my location. Never has even a drop come out. Wonder if the Lambo dudes can go after the station for compensation, as IMHO the breakaway failed, causing the inferno.

<<The driver of the blue Lambo, as well as a third friend, had also gone inside the gas station just before the minivan driver prematurely pulled away. >>

But Smith also points out that that the fire wasn't fault of the automatic cutoff system installed on the gas pump. It's designed to close off the gas supply in just this situation. However, that system, which Smith says was activated the moment the hose detached from the pump, couldn't stop the gas already in the hose at the time of the minivan driver's blunder.

That's BS! The fuel was spraying /showering down from the top, NOT the fuel already in the hose.

This video cuts off too soon but it appears the valve fails. It's really hard to tell but that second spray of fuel sure looks like it shouldn't be happening:
