LOL.... I always watch the guy as he goes to pump gas in my car. More than once after I clearly say preimum. I see them reach for the 87 button. Sorry about your night bill but I would like to see pics of the fried plugs.
mostly it takes away the possibility of someone carelessly starting a fire by getting back in their car and then getting back out again. somewhat of a common occurance and all it takes is to ground out that static in the vapors of the filler neck and you've got yourself a fire. to the best of my knowledge people residing in new jersey and oregon also have slightly lower insurance rates because of this AND it ALSO gives people additional jobs that would otherwise not exist. it really has no real cons from what i can see. until they just don't listen when you tell them to put premium in it.
