As anyone found that it is a pain in back to put fuel in the metris? I was filling up the other and the pump was moving slow and took me about 10 to 15 minutes to fill up. I'm 6'1 I though I was going to get stuck.
I don't get it. There are a few posts like this thread.I feel for you. I haven't got your height, but if I have to stand bent over like you did, I too have a bit of a struggle standing up straight again. I've run across gas pumps that just would not run at proper speed. When that occurs, I move to a different pump as soon as I realize there's a problem. If the second pump does the same I leave and find a different station.
I absolutely NEVER lock the lever and then remove my hand from it,,,,,anymore.I don't get it. There are a few posts like this thread.
How many seconds do we need to open the gas cap to put the nozzle in to squeeze the lever and lock it?
If the cut-off fails to work properly, you'll get plenty of gasoline on your car and on the ground around and under your car before you can stop it. You'll probably get gasoline on your person and your clothes too, I did. I know it's a rare event. I never gave it a thought before it happened to me. My wife was sitting in the van and I hate to think what might have happened with gasoline flowing under a just stopped vehicle with very hot components just inches away from the gasoline. I guess I'm just paranoid about it now.One never suggested leaving it unattended. Lock it, straighten your back, and attend it.
Yes I have two metris snd they both are a pain they stop every 2-4 gallons! MB TRIED saying it was old pumps but it happens and new and remodeled stations with newest pump! They literally gave me a memo that said to manually hold the rubber seal back 😡As anyone found that it is a pain in back to put fuel in the metris?
