I understood that the anti-misting additive was more geared towards safety
during a "fuel dumping" procedure in flight. The additive was supposed to
prevent the rare but destructive occurence of an aircraft flying through
the mist of it's dumping fuel and causing an explosion.

During a crash fuel will spill everywhere and will certainly catch fire
regardless of whether it's in a misted or liquid state.

Any ideas?
