    Passat 2L FSI Turbo. Same as Mk5 Golf GTI.

    Replacement front pipe would have out-stripped the value of the car. Local exhaust shop glued it back together for fuck-all.

    Not possible to do that unless you really, really try. Diesel nozzles are much larger diameter than gas nozzles to prevent this exact thing, but the diesel owners could fill up with gasoline.

    Gas nozzles are roughly 19mm, diesel nozzles are 25mm...

    Was reading this article last night about the change to Oregon law. Not sure if serious but some funny shit nonetheless.
    https://971zht.iheart.com/featured/k...s-pumping-law/

    New Jersey is the last state that doesn't let you pump your own gas.
    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

    Police warn that blow-up dolls are not recognised floatation devices.

    First time I drove through Oregon, I got out to fill the rental and was curtly informed I wasn't allowed to.

    Itís utterly pathetic right? Canít pump your own gas. What a bunch of soft cocks.

    Next thing they will be complaining that they have to scan their own groceries. Or lay their own house bricks. Or perform their own open heart surgery.

    Actually, I sorta agree with them. The supermarkets have already proven that the slippery slope can benefit them, and have plebs do the work so they donít have to pay for workers. We should get a fucking staff discount for doing our own work

    The main take home message I get from that is that there a must be lot of transients hanging around petrol stations in Oregon.

    That and out west they have these foreskins on the pump nozzles with vacuum attachments, or at least in all of socal and parts of washington. You literally have to push the nozzle in far enough that the foreskin thing's pressure sensor trips and it will vacuum all the fumes back to the pump, while pumping gas into the tank.

    I've seen them in a few other big cities here but the ones in socal, the pump will refuse to fill your tank until you push the nozzle firm enough to trip the sensor and start the vacuum.

    Yeah LA has those as they reckon the fumes escaping and the number of cars filling worked out to be major contributor to smog.

    o, I've never been able to fathom them out, how does the auto fill work on the pumps over there? There's a lever and you somehow lock it and it fills the car until it's full or preset $ value. Then once it's stopped you grab the pump nozzle and the static discharge creates a large fire.

    Yeah, it's fucking weird anytime I drive through NJ and need petrol. Still not sure if I am meant to tip them or not.

    The auto fill has a little suction tube on the inside of the nozzle, with a float valve in it. If the petrol level in the filler neck lifts the float switch then the pump shuts off. On older cars that don't have the restrictor plate in them (my Z is one of them, the Maverick is another) it doesn't always work and sometimes the auto-fill feature will spray you with petrol. I don't use the auto-fill for those cars anyway.

    In that whole shemozzle, I wonder if the qualified pump operators were allowed to pump their own fuel when not working or say, at another servo?

    Last time I was in country Victoria there was a old school servo in Castlemaine that had an attendant to fill up for you. Felt weird sitting inside the car whilst the fuel went in as opposed to standing beside it. That was a few years ago so dunno if they still do anymore.

    I don't know why people, particularly the older ones, crap on about how great it was to have someone fill up your car for you.

    It's not exactly a difficult task to perform, and I don't have time for old Barney to shuffle out of the building over to my car, to pump the fuel in at a trickle so he can shoot the shit about this that, and the other, and then try to wash the windscreen with his bucket of mucky water that has 3 inches of silt in the bottom of it, using a rag on a stick. Then he won't let you leave until he tells you about his old Standard that would go 20 miles to the gallon on Super, sometimes better, if the wind over the ranges was just right, which you could tell by which way the cows were facing, and how many in the paddock were still standing up...

    The flow back overflow thingo yeah.

    But I've never seen that lock lever on Australian petrol pumps. The high flow diesel truck pumps have them, but fill a road train.

    The lock levers were still fairly common until a few years ago. I've come across them at smaller servos with older style pumps a few times in the last couple of years. They're useless with my thing because it's got an anti siphon cage which forces the fuel back up the nozzle which is a pain in the arse. Also means I can't really use a high flow nozzle, unless I put it in upside down.

    The lock levers all had to be disabled on self serve here in WA.
    They usually did this by just removing the catch pin.
    I used to carry a paperclip to make filling the work Landcruiser easier.

    Self serve only became legal in WA in the late 80s.
    Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

    I use to go to a servo twice a week where they filled it up for you. The chick was tidy as fuck and loved a chat, so would just stand and chat whilst she filled my car up. Then we would walk in together to pay by card whilst being a gentleman and letting her walk in front so I could stare at her arse. I moved away and have to fill my own car up like a pleb now.

    Most nozzles still have the lock lever, the latching pin has simply been removed as per awdmoke.

    Recently been to a servo in WA that had signs on the pumps saying it was illegal to fill your own tank, ~$1100 fine IIRC, sounded fucking stupid.
