    Default Petrol bowser nozzle stuck in tank!

    Hooley Dooley! Went to top up the tank this morning. When I had filled the tank, I could not remove the bowser nozzle! It was stuck fast. Tried and tried. Got a bit frantic. The attendant came out and somehow managed to remove it... I think the little latch inside the tank filler might be bent. Interesting start to the day. btw: A$1.34 per litre today (.78 GBP). Warm and sunny here today. 27 C.

    very common problem, you're not the only one. Some cars have even been damaged. Mine got stuck once, when I was used to just shoving it in. Only way to prevent it getting stuck is to gently place the nozzle on the filler top.
    No innuendos please, this is a family forum.
