One good thing I could see from not pumping own fuel..and unfortunately I see it all the damn time. You get out and your waiting on fill up, some jack ass pulls to pump behind, in front, or beside you and gets out of his car/truck with a &#%÷&^! cigarette either in mouth or in hand and it is #!$@^#^ lit. Maybe they didn't pay attention in science class or maybe they didn't listen to what everyone says or maybe they can't see the 20 signs around the gas pumps that say NO SMOKING! But I assure you they aren't there bc smoking causes cancer they are there bc smoking will blow the €÷_÷€=% pumps up. One thing is for sure..the ones who do it are indeed the poster children for birth control.
Why don't you tell us what you really think about smoking at the gas station?
In reality, I see them closing their windows on that cold morning while the attendant pumps gas, smoking their cigarette in the warm car interior. Fumes leak into the cabin, and Kaboom, you get a nice explosion.
Government intervention for "our own good" has resulted in Darwin's model of evolution being skewed to allow survival of members of our species that would otherwise not make it.

No, the one on the Sierra was all interior to the down hose of the fuel line. Didn't look like any external parts at all.
OK, I hear all of the dust complaints. I am a little surprised, here in Texas I don't see a lot of dust in that area of my truck. But I can see the concern. The diesel guys may get my suggestion better on this one than the gasoline guys.
Most of the service stations I use have got paper towels over there with their windshield cleaning supplies. You also want to avoid getting fuel, especially diesel on your hands as you fill the tank. Take one of those paper towels and stuff it into space as you close the fuel door. This will block a lot of the dust as you go down the road, just toss it and get a clean one at each fillup.
I know the next concern is going to be someone putting a match to the paper towel and creating a 21 gallon Molotov cocktail...No wonder half of you guys where a tin foil cap with all of the conspiracies around.
