    Glad it turned out well for him. This short video shows how fast these guys can be, Watch it just after the sheriff quits talking and the camera rolls.

    My wife got kinda quiet when she saw it! And then I showed her this post of yours. She will start paying attention, I guarantee you. I think that we can't take anything for granted anymore.

    An additional point...took me many years to finally convince my wife that the time to fill up is when the car is 1/4 down, not 15/16 down.

    Having enough gas by planning ahead could have eliminated the problem entirely...I'm sure that you have already mentioned that to him.

    Stay armed...it's a jungle out there...stay safe!
    Interesting... I start looking to fill up around a half tank. Makes those long road trips a bit longer, but leaves me with more opitons.

    goldshellback,
    ET1(SS), huh? Is your boy a 'nuke' also? that definitely explains a lot...

    gald he made it out safe.

    My g/f thinks I am crazy for getting gas at 1/4 or sometimes at a 1/2 tank. but I like to stop at places I know and don't want to go looking in a pinch.

    Also about the keyless entry. My jeep only opens the drivers door on the first hit and the rest on the second. I was in CA for work and rented a jeep, they had the keyfob set to unlock all doors on one hit. it drove me crazy.

    Very lucky young man. I always start looking for gas when the tank is 1/2 full. Lock those doors at the pump.

    Rodger That, shellback... and "Rickover U" wasn't that bad. Gotta love Goose Creek, SC...except the mosquitos were bigger than the birds.
