Haha, I feel a m.net group hug in the makings.

Maybe you should do one for filling the gas yourself too?

Very Nice, I was to lazy to go through and write it all out. I really wanted to elaborate more on the steps so people dont get confused. =P

Gotta love the M.net people

By the way, one small correction. I would move the grounding yourself part before the unscrewing the lid. What if vapor escapes when you unscrew the lid and then the static discharge from your body ignites it? Someone could blame you for that. I would do it to be safe :thumbup:

As far as the gas cap goes you turn it until it starts to click. Thats how you know you have it on as tight as it needs to be. All cars do this.
