Re: Filling with fuel

I use Bill's method below. However; I saw an interesting techique on the way
to Steamboat a couple of weeks ago - Hope you don't mind my telling Ben -
Ben rotated the nozzle 180 deg when filling his TCQ, worked real slick for
him. I was impressed enough to try it myself in Steamboat. Think there must
be some technique still to be learned as considerable fuel squirted back at
me from the filler.
