    I told myself i'll never do that , meaning overfill my gas tank . I ran my tank real low as to get all of last years fuel and sta-bil out so decided today was today to get a fresh tank of gas . It was a cold morning , 35 degrees , but was going to be 70 by the afternoon . I pulled into the amoco and was putting fuel in everything was going fine . Nozzle clicked off and still had a little ways to go to reach the bottom of where the nozzle goes in . I was very so slightly squeezing the nozzle when this dink comes walking by and said , cold this morning but will be nice this afternoon . I looked up for a split second and said yes and looked back down and gas was overflowing out of the tank . I said a few choice words to myself , it was no ones fault but my own . I wiped the tank off with the paprer towels and went off to work . I was so ticked off at myself because i'm so careful when filling up as not to spill any gas and hear i overflowed it . One can never be too careful , at least it didn't burst into flames !

    Just be glad it didn't get on your crotch area. Now that stings a little, and itch:34::bigsmiley15:. Man that itches.

    Yes, I find it takes my complete focus - not to overfill! I am going to try and NEVER :newsmile055: look away from my tank when filling. Thanks for the reminder.

    We all say "it will never do it". But yet in time we all do it. Somehow we live through it.:(

    I grew up working at the family gas station. I was about 12 y/o and a guy wearing colors and riding a 70's custom chopper rolls in. Tells me he wants to pump his own gas, I say no I have to pump it. He says "spill any on my bike and I am going to knock you on your fourth point of contact". I got nervous and spilt fuel everywhere; tank, pipes, engine, ......

    You can look up but let go of the trigger at the same time.
