    I think we are all creatures of habit, and seem to do the right things with out carry guns and gear 98% of the time.

    those day where things are out of line like you being in a hurry, that's the 2% we have all fell into.

    No spare mag, no speedloader, or in a worst case, forgetting your gun all together.

    However, it's the creeps like that guy that's reason enough to carry on your person or in your car.

    It's also good mechanical practice, if you have a tank mounted pump. I burned one up by never filling it above half. The new one never gets below half.

    Glad everything worked out for you. Just one more reason to hate those pesky gun-free zones.

    Edit: Looks like someone beat me to it. lol. To add to what's been posted, though. Not only is the pressure different, but a tank mounted pump uses the fuel in the tank as coolant. When you get below half, you don't have enough fuel to adequately cool the pump. THIS is what happened to mine.

    I've never had a problem at a gas stop at night.

    One night , as I was filling my car..... they were parked at the pump but not putting gas in it (4 males, age low 20's), 2 seemed to be scoping the place as to when it was a good time to rob them..... they would approach toward the front door and someone would say, "not yet, not yet" ...... then one of them noticed me. I'm relaxed, leaning against my car filling it with gas, and my hand is on my waist line (near my gun). It made him nervous I guess. He quickly had a private talk with the others nodding my direction, and they seemed to make a hasty decision to get in the car and leave.

    My daughter says it's a "look" I have at times. She says when you have that "look" .... anyone with any sense knows ... it's serious. I have had interesting , to say the least, experiences with panhandlers. One then tried to turn it into a robbery... telling him I WOULD give him all of my money (when he went for the knife in his pocket, I put my hand on my gun and told him how unwise that would be), and another where he wanted to fight me because I told him I had no money on me (which I really didn't )..... and asked him to give me a couple of bucks because my billfold was empty (even showed him it was empty). None of these contacts with panhandlers have been good.

    Always good to have an empty billfold in your other pocket.

    How an Electric Fuel Pump Works

    Modern electric fuel pumps are cooled by the fuel. When the fuel is lower, it doesn't effectively cool the pump as efficiently, and heat is definitely no "friend" to electronic pumps. Premature fuel pump failure is common for vehicles ran that see regularly low fuel levels.


    As it has been pointed out as well; Low fuel is being poorly prepared. Part of the reason we carry is the idea of "better to have it, and not need it then to need it and not have it". Maybe you have been lucky enough never had to deal with a road rage maniac, but the last thing I would want to have to deal with is my car running out of gas while dealing with a road rage maniac! I also live "in the country" and have a family. If an event were to happen where I need to "get out of dodge" or get a loved one to seek emergency medical care, the last thing I need to do is have a gas light come on!


    Back on topic,...OP: Glad you are OKAY and lesson learned!

    Glad it worked out for you. Should have asked him if he needed a gas shower!
