Call me a bad role model - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I've seen fires at gas stations where the person took off while the pump was still filling the tank. I've seen people crash cars into pumps at filling stations (that should've caused a fire but did not). I've seen people with a live charcoal grill in the back of a pickup truck, where the truck was being refueled. People will do crazy things.
If I find a pump where the nozzle is prone to dribble, I never go back there even if they are 10 cents a gallon less. I know I have room for 14 gallons and I stop the refueling at 11 or 12 gallons. You guys are confusing what we tell young people and naifs what to do, with where actual risks lie. I think if you tell people in effect "don't ever do anything, it is safer that way" you're keeping everyone who listens to you in the dark. I'm trying to get people to actually think about what they're doing, instead of outlawing everything.
