I was a former hydro ceramic engineer in high school. Maybe we went to the same engineering school????

so if you try to put fuel in your own vehicle in one of those states that forbide it do they go nuts on you? call 911 and sh&*? how would this appear on your rap sheet, "felony; fueling own vehicle" LOL, never heard of such a law! I know my mom used to only go to places that filled it up for you, but after a while she gave up and started doing it herself because there wasn't anyone in the area that did it for you any more.

Between this thread and the thread about needing a warning light to tell you to fill your windshield washer fluid I'm starting to be very concerned about our future.

Worked at a chevron station in the 1980's in high school. A genius driving an ambulance used a bic lighter to wedge into the pump handle so he could use the restroom. When he returned, he pulled the lighter out, caused a spark, and boom! Pumps caught fire, ambulance burned, station had to be rebuilt. Luckily I wasn't working that day!

I think it is winter and the lack of sun light, just my theory though

I appreciate a petty insult as much as the next guy, but why? However, if you want to take a shot at me, I will defend myself. My test scores place me in the top 98% of my class, I attended a summer course at Columbia university this past summer and receive multiple college recruitment letters each month. No one has showed me how to get gas without holding the pump. That doesn't make me an idiot.

I used to have that problem in my old Chevy G-30 van, basically you need to find the sweet spot, and not set the flow full force. Thankfully I haven't had that problem with my camaro (2011), but I stand there just the same to make sure all goes well.

OP, I don't know if your local stations have that fume/vapor recapturing system on your nozzles, but that may add to your woes both by not allowing the back pressure to escape (the old HI-C can with only one hole) or by actually springing the nozzle out just enough when you let go to stop the pump.
