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.

Instead of using the gas cap, squeeze the handle all the way and wedge a tennis ball in there. Works great!

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.

I'm guessing it's a union thing, so if you pumped your own they'd most likely send some muscle to your house to break both your arms so you wouldn't do it again.

Well, i did not attend Columbia or any college for that matter and no one showed me how to pump gas! Sort of figured it out on my very own!
I cant believe I came back to this thread and worse, actually replied! I really need a life.
I honestly would feel better if this was a troll!

That's one of the funniest things I've seen lately. I saw the thread title and was going to suggest chili dogs, but it looks like that subject has been covered.

The variable stops on the levers have been removed at most stations here..probably insurance requirement..to many idiots spilling gas and over filling if it does'nt click itself off..
Working for fire dept. we were called out many times for these type fuel spills..
Also have had people drive off with the nozzle still in the fuel inlet...there goes the neighborhood...you'd all be shocked if you knew some of the people driving the streets with your families out there..
I made a car wreck once 3 cars involved, no one spoke English, But all 3 spoke different languages.. SAD ..

Bad thing is this guy will end up being a lawyer and somehow sue the oil companies for their gas pumps and we will all pay when we are forced by law to stand next to the handle while fueling, lest we run afoul of the law.

Whatever you guys do, don't bring up replacing windshield wipers with this guy.

Oh yeah, you do have to hold onto the air nozzle when putting air in your tires, don't walk away......

You might want to ship your car to New Jersey so you can have some professional fuel island attendant fill it up for you.

LOL had too.... Back in the day we would get these little rectangular boxes called C rations. They came with food in them, some had things like a little chocolate called a John Wayne bar,,, tasted like exlax, other stuff was gross, meatballs and pork and beans together, some lima beans mixed with other stuff called slimy green MF and ham etc they all had a bad nickname usually. Any way experimenting over the years we found out that tuna fish, peanut butter, and pork and beans together could solve the gas crisis................. No one would listen to us though they just ran away screaming....... Then we won the war.......... Game Over.
