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.

I Don't know how I missed this one.

Make sure you shake it before you put it away.

OP, I feel your pain. Here is some advice:

Pull into the gas station. Pull up to the pump and stop within a reasonable distance so the hose will reach your gas filler door. Put the car in park (if auto) or 1st gear (if manual). Apply parking brake. Turn car off. Take keys out of ignition. Open the car door. Step out of the car and stand up. Close the car door after you've moved your body out of the way of the door. Walk to the gas filler door. Push on it slightly to open it. Then open it completely. Tell the gas attendant the amount of gas you want in dollars. Take the nozzle and insert it into the filler. Pull up on the handle to begin pumping gas. That should do it.

Hopefully we can get a sticky on how to properly fill our gas tanks. And one on windshield washer level indicators.
