I never knew about this until I was hauling a 22' loaded car trailer one night. He flashed and I was like what??? then I realized and was like ah, thanks.

It's only a matter of time until we're all driving diesels though... There's nothing to upgrade to until ford gets their head out of their ***, and the gassers won't last forever. So get them now while they're plentiful!

When you drive over those tire stops in the parking lot, and you didn't even know it

You begin fueling, and four cars fueled and left before you.

We don't selfserve our gas in NJ. State mandate that attendants do it.

When you get gas, go into the convienience store while filling, order hoagies, ATM, go to the bathroom, check out, return to the truck, and it is still filling.

Or: when the person behind you in line to get gas get really irate at how long it is taking you and starts to complain. Priceless.

Guess your state legislators think the average citizen of their state is too dumb to figure out how to pump their own gas
Ok so the gas station attendant is smarter that the average resident of NJ. saw a segment on CNN when gas prices were sky hi asking NJ why the would not let people pump their own gas...

You know you are driving a V-10 Excursion (when towing a heavy load)...

1) when you are "pulling" those long Interstate up-hill grades in the mountain west, and some hairy hippies in a VW mini-van wave at you as THEY pass YOU...

2) when you pull into a fast food joint and absolutely NO ONE cares or even NOTICES that you decided to leave your engine idling.....

3) when you go into an AUTO ZONE or NAPA to buy some oil for an oil change, and the kid behind the check-out counter starts arguing that you need more than TWICE the oil then the five quarts you are buying.....

I like the last 2, but you got it wrong with the first one. I KNEW I was driving a V-10 X when I was pulling the 3 mile long 6% grade outside Rapid City South Dakota this summer with my 30' 8k lb camper in tow and I passed a Dodge 3500 (Cummins) pulling about a 20' camper, and he DID NOT look happy....
