I pity the poor saps who approach the petrol station (that's Gas station for all you Yanks out there) and for some reason seem terrified of the prospect of filling up at the side that is furthest from the petrol cap.
OH NO! You have to drag the nozzle around the back of the car...and it might be too short...and you might look stupid...flammable liquid everywhere...the universe implodes.
I don't care. The pipes are more than long enough. I do it all the time. It means I can fill up quicker and be on my way. Hah!
