Look with your eyes, not your hands!
Heck, try it...
I've seen that video before, so I was looking at the ceiling in my local station to see if I could see those nozzles. I couldn't see anything, so maybe my stations don't have such a feature.
That had to be quite a surprise for the other folks there.
bet they guy there wasnt very happy.
4 of those videos are about "dumb women".
I wonder WHICH GT'er's site that could be....???
I'm betting some strangling happened after that
Bonus: The fog makes good cover.
Thanks for posting this. I'll be sure to keep my doors closed and windows up from now on when fueling.
I always thought that was just a fuel shut off. I'll have to look for any sort of system.
C'mon now...who here isn't a wee bit smarter after watching that? I didn't know THAT happened when pushing the big red button...I thought it was just a fuel shutoff.
And the poor sap who had just hung up the gas nozzle....for a brief moment he had to think he just blew up himself and the entire gas station, and had arrived at the cloud-shrouded pearly gates.
Yeah, but you had enough brains not to push it didn't you?
And we expect these people to vote with any sort of sense.
I'm not buying it. I've never seen or heard of such a thing at a gas station and I can't believe a gas station would have a button for just anyone to push. I would imagine that a lot of pranksters would have a field day with that thing.
And I thought all the knot heads were on the videos.
Never seen a fire button on a pump.
I've seen red buttons by the pumps but they were emergency shut-offs.
Maybe those sprayers should shoot water on people who haven't had a shower in a few days. Or it could be a new kind of consolidated, efficient gas station/car wash.
I used to be a truck driver, an owner-operator, in fact...
There are plenty of commercial fueling stations around that cater to bigger trucks and commercial vehicles. High volume pumps with satellite hoses and nozzles for filling both tanks at the same time, the overhead roof is high to accomodate larger vehicles, and they bristle with spray heads just as it appears in the video. These places often don't look like much in comparison to Super America and BP stations/Convenience Stores/Cafés, just pumps and a store front; sometimes they're fully automated, and don't even have a store, just an ATM-type paying system. They mostly just sell diesel, but they also sell gasoline for both trucks and cars.
On the pillars that hold the overhead roof up are fire emergency buttons, and another inside the office if there is one. These not only discharge the ceiling mounted extinguishers, they also shut off the power to all of the pumps. Another factor is that they can also be activated by heat, in the event of a fire. Stations of the type mentioned are required to have them.
I'm betting that a lot of new regular gas stations also have them in place, in some capacity.
I have seen very few that don't have that button.
I'm not a sue happy guy....but these days I bet that stupidity could land that guy a nice fat check....
Seeing all the residue afterward makes me wonder what it's like to suck a few lungfuls of the stuff.
C'mon.....who here hasn't done that at least once??
