  The petrol pump
by MikeAtSea

Favorite thing: Okay at some stage if you hire a car the car will need to be re-filled. Every country has different methods how to fill your tank, and so has the US. I remember stopping at a petrol station, getting out, walking to the pump, insert the fuel nossle and ... nothing... I tried again... and again... and again... At the end I asked another driver how to get fuel. And she looked at me with big eyes, but realized I was foreign. She said go inside and pay first. Okay so I did. Next problem! I had no clue how much a gallon was and how much fuel in general would cost in the US. I gave the pretrol attendend US$ 50 and got another set full of big eyes. I filled up my car and at just over US$ 20 the car was full. So I went back inside for change... I am sure you get the point :-))
