Re: Problems at the pump.
I've never been able to hold the nozzle at WOT, but a couple weeks ago I actually found a station where I couldnt get the nozzle to stay on a notch at all and it was so slow, so I tried pulling the nozzle out about half way and it worked like a charm, as Juice said. If you look at how the nozzle is shaped and the angle of the filler hose, it makes sense that there will be lots of backpressure as the fuel tries to make the turn. I guess FORD tanks dont sit as low as most vehicles, which makes the filler hose more horizontal than most... becomes a big issue when you're shoving $50 worth of gas down the mouth of a petrol-guzzling bastard [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
