I hate green!!!!!!

Post by Bill James » September 2nd, 2011, 12:57 pm

I hate environmentalists!! OK. lemme splain, I bought some new plastic "green approved" gas cans, went and filled em up with some of that grest "green approved" gas fuel. got my big funnel, and went to fill the tank on Dr. Frank so as to be ready for our big car show tomorrow.I soon discoverd that to get the fuel to pour out of the tank you have to push the nozzle back. So picture a 75 year old motor head trying to balance on the fender of his old truck, holding on with one hand, pouring gas in a funnel, and at the same time hold the stupid nozzle back with out getting gas all over the truck or himself :evil: So, of course I tore the dam nozzle apart, that fixed that, except, I didn't see the spring inside what was left of the nozzle. You guessed it, the spring went into my nice clean tank :twisted: A flashlight and my small magnet thingy ought to work, right? Well the magnet stuck to the bottem of the tank, pulling the magnet out of the handle. I got the spring out with a piece of wire, but I think the magnet is there for good. Oh well didn't someone suggest puting a magnet in the tank to attract rust and stuff? After all that I'll probley not win a trophy tommorr either :cry: Bill James

That's only if you attempt to attach the same poles to each other.

I saw the subject line and thought someone else had gotten tired of seeing dark green AA's! Oh well, I guess I'm on my own. Sorry for the hijack. Luke
