Well, I can speak from experience, as a used to be two-pack a day chain smoker. You just forget it's in your mouth.
I suddenly realized I had a lit cigarette between my lips while pouring gas into the one gallon tank of the Briggs and Stratton that powered my boat. The waves were bouncing me around so I needed two hands to steady the gas can. I froze, trying to figure out how to get rid of the smoke before I blew up the boat, and me.
Gently stopped pouring, leaned over the side and spat the smoke out.

Just replace the battery with a closed-cell AGM and never worry.
