Re: Don't give me no static ...
"most gas(petrol) station pump fires seem to be caused by females with man-made fiber underwear getting back into their cars after starting the fuel flow ..."
Most european fuel station fires have been caused by drivers with their engines on fire pulling up alongside the pumps then running to the kiosk for help - even before the autoflow thingie was disabled.
"Which is one of the reasons given for disabling the "auto flow" feature on UK pumps. "
You can fix that with a 3mm allen key in the appropriate hole on on the nozzle. it's much easier than trying to jam a (tethered) fuel cap in there
Mine's the one with a keyring containing an "auto flow fixer" and my hands don't hurt much at all now, thanks.
