At present there are discussions about an electronic control of the closure and locking of the gas tank lid.
Especially in this dangerous explosive area, Reed Sensors are ideal because they are hermetically sealed and can be specified as intrinsically safe. The actual Reed Switch is mounted in the gas cap while the magnet is mounted in the lid of the gas tank.
If the gas cap is not locked or the gas lid is not closed the Reed Switch is open. The on-board computer monitors the state of the Reed Switch and if it detects an open, locks the ignition system and the vehicle can not be started.
