Gas Tip of the Day

You all know about the numbs on most gas pumps that allow you to lock the pump in place so you don't have to stand there holding it for 5 minutes. Well as you have also noticed, not all pumps have this feature. There are a couple of things you can do about it. One, is never shop at that gas station again. Aka. give em some good old kick in the shins capitalism style. But before you can do that you still need gas and you can just jam your gas cap in there to keep it running.



And don't worry, you're not going to make a mess, gas pumps have that handy cut off feature, the same one you use if the pump had the little notches still there.

Big thanks to Joe B on this one.

So one Sunday, I stopped for gas as I was headed home from church. I didnt quite have the nozzle all the way into the tank before squeezing the handle, and gasoline sprayed all over the side of my car, and my nice clothes.

It was terrible.

If someone lit a match within 20 feet of me, I probably would have exploded into flame on the spot.

I am actually going to seek these pumps out now. How cool. I think I like the fact that your gas cap actually has a place to go the best! Normally it just smacks up against the side of the car, which can risk scratching and denting. Joe B, we salute you. Pete, I think this discovery made the whole trip worth it!

I am so glad that I still have the wherewithal to pass on something useful to the younger generation. It does my heart good to know that an old fella can still make a contribution to the knowledge pool. By the way, you can use a wallet to do this also (I don't have a photo) but you probably don't want to leave it, lest someone run off with your entire identity. Joe B.
