Stopped for gas on my way home today. At the pump ahead of me and on the other side of the island is a beautiful BMW 323i; fire engine red. Looked like it was his first fillup after driving it off the showroom floor. As I got out of my pickup, he walked into the C-store. He left his fuel nozzle in the filler neck. I was still fueling my truck when he returned, hopped in the driver's seat and started the car. I got to his driver's door JUST as he was reaching for the shifter... (He left with that beautiful paint work still perfect; WHEW!)

I never take my hand off the nozzle until I put it back on the pump.

Just a thought, I wonder if any New Beetle owners think the engine is in the back? hehe.
It isn't
