Pumping gas is painful
« on: November 13, 2017, 06:04:04 PM »
I think I?m going to invent a new way of pumping gas; the current process seems a bit antiquated anyhow.  The little latch that supposedly helps keep the pump going never works therefore causes me pain while squeezing for so long.  Is it just me or do others have this issue also?
