Subject says it all. Filling the GTS 300 tank is a PITA - maybe worse in California where the gas hose has the "collar" you need to hold back. Am I missing something? Driving me nuts.

Open gas cap - lift petcarrier and place gas cap at the back to keep petcarrier raised.

Insert nozzle as far as you can with it pointing towards the rear, the handle towards the front.

Pull up the foreskin with left hand as far as you can. Pump until the first click-off. Do not attempt to top up.

If Robot had inserted the nozzle orientated as I suggested, I doubt he'd have had a slight spill. OK, some pumps cut-offs can be a bit slow, but most CA ones I've met are just fine. If you fill from the side, as he did, you may get a spill regardless.

The translator tells me "foreskin" which we use only in anatomy to indicate the anterior part of .... ouch ... penis.

Your translator is not wrong. That's Jim's derisive term for the vapor-recovery sleeves on California gas pumps.

Ah ... it was intentional, hahaha ... now I understand the metaphor; sorry for the request.
