When you pull in to pump gas and all of the lanes that have a pump on the side where your gas cap is are full, will you pull to the other pumps and pull the nozzle all the way around the back of your car to pump gas?

no. How do you handle it when somebody pulls up to the pump you have the nozzle for?

Only at Costco. They have extra long hoses for that purpose. I also make sure to keep the hose from hitting the car. No paint scratches!

Pay attention to the video of yesterday's weather forecast and enter it.

How many topics can we create about the five big cities go to it as your favorite place. It seems every time I think of this? How many different variations of ASTM-D-4814 can you create?

I'll either wait or go to another place – should fuel up with 1/4 gallon minimum, that way you can always go to another place to fuel up.

No, it is extremely rare for me to have to wait for a pump.

Nope. Hose is usually too short for my vehicle and it is not too much of a problem where I usually get fuel.

I have, but most of the time the hose won't reach. Plus it is much harder to get the nozzle into the openning

No, dirt on the gas hose will produce scratches on the paint or clear coat. On the otherhand, if the car is old and on it's last leg, then yes.

No, I try to pull with the pump on the side of the tank. I don't want to drag the hose on the car.
