Excursion Humor

You know you drive an Excursion, when you have to turn the engine off during refueling, so that the gas pump can keep up.

... you have an unlimited fuel budget, and exceed it the first time that you fill up.

When you spend $30 to $40 just to fill up a quarter tank of fuel...

People stared me down and looked below my truck to see if the fuel is falling out somewhere, lmbo!

That usually starts the "how much does it cost?" and "what does it average?" conversation, lol!

Keep the top half full and the bottom half takes care of itself, huh?

I try to never let it get more than a quarter tank low, before I go and top it off. I just cringe to much when I have to put in more fuel and cash than that... Also, it makes sure that I always have fuel on hand, incase of bad weather or an unexpected trip somewhere.

FROM GOOGLE;

What Is A Busybody?
A busybody is someone who, quite simply, sticks their nose in your business. This sort of person feels as if they need to know everything going on around them, including everyone else’s business. Usually someone with a lot of idle time, the busybody attempts to fill that time by prying into the lives of those around them.

A busybody could be a neighbor, a co-worker, a friend, a family member, or some other person who would otherwise be uninterested. If the busybody is a friend or acquaintance, they are likely a gossip looking for goodies to share with others. If a family member, they may be gossips as well, or simply trying to be the one “in control” of the family. These family members are usually someone outside of your immediate family – an aunt, uncle, brother, sister, parent, or parent-in-law. If someone else, such as a neighbor or otherwise uninterested party, likely this busybody is just someone looking to make trouble by exerting false control over the lives of others.

Busybodies are tattletales. That’s why most gossips are also busybodies. More often busybodies are the investigative reporters for the gossips, uncovering the latest dirt on you for the rumor mill. They have to tell someone about whatever it is they saw about you that they did not like. Usually their information is not complete; they did not see the entire situation or conversation they are nosing into, they may not know whatever inside knowledge may be present (inside jokes, slang, behaviors, etc.). And the busybody, quite frankly, doesn’t care. They are quite ready to act upon their incomplete knowledge by exerting the false control they perceive themselves to possess.

I have some sort of leak in my gas tank so I can actually only put a little under 3/4 a tank in mine When I go over that I get a strong fuel smell in the truck and if I go over any bumps in a parking lot it gets worse. I think the lock ring for the fuel pump isn't on tight.

Fuel injectors are notorious for this symptom. A quick fix is to disconnect the gas pedal linkage. The level of fuel in the tank should hold if you do this mod. If that doesn't work you may need to lock the fuel filler cap.


All in good humor...

Eh, redundancy has it's place. But that definition of busybody doesn't fit anyone here on the forum.
