Gas hole

Have a pop open gas cap on my 68 coupe and every time I go to the gas station I have to monkey around with the nozzle so gas doesn't spill all over my cap and bumper. How do you guys do it/do you guys have the same issue?

Lol!!! Same here, I usually take off the rubber ring that's around the nozzle. It allows the tube to go in further. But it's still dumb if u think about it. Maybe the gas tubes were different back in the 60's.

Hahaha okay so I'm not the only one. Thanks for the tip, hopefully the dope at the gas station doesnt yell at me for taking that thing off.( I live in the "great" state of new jersey and were not supposed to pump our own gas)

It's a stupid union thing to keep all the full service station jobs. So every gas station is full service by state law in New Jersey and you still pay the extra full service price, of course.

I remember this exact discussion on another forum. I remember as a kid my mom would go to a full service station (in RI), but I'm guessing it was the last one left in the area. Are there any still around?

Wow, that's special to say the least. In Montreal where I'm from we still have them around but not that many left. Either way I don't let anyone touch my car! Lol

The way i use to do it is there are two settings (in cali) on the handle where you can pump slower like there was two notches on the latch i just put it on the first one and would have no problem with it spilling

I used to have a 1970 pop open filler cap on my '66. I just held the pump sideways in the filler tube.

I actually ended up taking it off my car while it was sitting at the pump. lol Guy pulled up next to me in a 1970 Mustang, offered me $190 and his twist off cap (from a '67) for it, so we swapped caps right there. rofl

Hahaha nice. I figured it out. I just stuff the nozzle in vertically as far as it goes and it seems to work
