We don't do that in Oregon... No self service.
Unfortunately. I'd pump my own gas any day. Loved it when I lived elsewhere for a time... go to the gas station, swipe card, pump gas, go home. No waiting, no worrying about people not being careful, etc. Having to have gas pumped for us is idiotic. They could at least give us self-serve and full serve.

And BTW, in case anyone thinks I'm bashing "gas pumpers", I used to be one many many years ago. As a consumer, though, I'd far rather pump my own.

It should have triggered a CEL. I think it says right on the fuel door that not putting the gascap on tightly will cause the check engine light to come on. Interesting...

speaking of a brain fart, I had one of my wheels off last night(checking brake pads for wear-still have a ton after 3700 miles). I put it back on and drove to dinner, but left my wheel key on the lock. I came home and there was the key, sitting in front of my driveway.
