First, a lot of people mistook what I said (probably my fault). I was 
talking ONLY about the damage to the CAR. If you think it's worth your 
while to sue 7-11 over the rest of it, be my guest.
Personally, this irritates the heck out of me. Shit happens. People are 
stupid. It's unfortunate and annoying, and sometimes dangerous, but 
that's part of life in the human world. 
I stand behind my input as regards to the car. The rest of you are 
welcome to decide wether or not you want to spend all your time talking 
to lawyers and/or judges.
My response may be "typical insurance guy" but it's a FACT that I thought 
might be helpful to the poor gas saturated owner.
Hmmm, managed to state my case without four letter words too....
