Anticipation

On the return of my trip to Atlanta over the weekend, my gas tank was getting pretty low so I decided to stop at the first place I came upon which happened to be some rinky-dink station in the middle of nowhere so I pulled in.  The display on the first two pumps couldn’t be read partially because they were in direct sunlight and even using my body to block the sun I could not read the instructions on the screen.  They say the third time is a charm, or something like that, so I pulled over to a pump that was shaded and the screen was viewable. Finally!  I put my credit card in, selected credit vs. debit and entered my zip code.  Walla! it worked!  I was told to remove the nozzle and select the grade of gas I wanted.  I did and the video above shows how the pump dispensed the gasoline into my car.  

I pulled the pump out. Restarted it and could not get it to work any faster.  I stopped it at $1.60 which seemed to take a very long time to get that much.  Had I stayed there to complete my fill-up, I’d probably still be there.

I mosied on down the highway and found a more friendly gas pump at the next station.

  1. you should have gone to one of those supercharging stations lilly showed us on her phone. I hear they are a lot faster than those other kinds of stations.
