In Oregon, the law was passed in 1951 basically to employ unemployables and they can't seem to shake it. A bill was intoduced last year to allow self-serve, but the author admitted it didn't have the votes.

Here is a list of other quirky state laws I found researching this;

Alaska – it is considered an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane.
Arizona – any misdemeanor committed while wearing a red mask is considered a felony.
Arizona – when being attacked by a criminal or burglar, you may only protect yourself with the same weapon that the other person possesses.

Baltimore, Maryland – it is a violation of city code to sell chicks or ducklings to a minor within one week of the Easter holiday.
Barber, North Carolina – fights between cats and dogs are prohibited.
Bexley, Ohio – the installation and usage of slot machines in outhouses is prohibited.
Boise, Idaho – residents may not fish from a giraffe'* back.
Chicago, Illinois – it is forbidden to eat in a place that is on fire.
Chico, California – detonating a nuclear device within the city limits results in a $500 fine.
Everett, Washington – it is illegal to display a hypnotized or allegedly hypnotized person in a store window.
Fargo, North Dakota – one may be jailed for wearing a hat while dancing, or even for wearing a hat to a function where dancing is taking place.
Georgia – it is illegal to use profanity in front of a dead body which lies in a funeral home or in a coroner’* office.
Klamath Falls, Oregon – it is illegal to walk down a sidewalk and knock a snakes head off with your cane.
La Crosse, Wisconsin – you may not worry a squirrel.
Memphis, Tennessee – it is illegal to give any pie to fellow diners. It is also illegal to take unfinished pie home. All pie must be eaten on the premises.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin – it is against the law to play a flute and drums on the streets to attract attention.
Minnesota – a person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head.
Montana – it is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone.
Nebraska – it is illegal for bar owners to sell beer unless they are simultaneously brewing a kettle of soup.
New Hampshire – you cannot sell the clothes you are wearing to pay off a gambling debt.
Oklahoma – it is illegal to have the hind legs of farm animals in your boots.
Pennsylvania – ministers are forbidden from performing marriages when either the bride or groom is drunk.
Rhode Island – any marriage where either of the parties is an idiot or lunatic is null and void.
San Francisco, California – it is illegal to pile horse manure more than six feet high on a street corner.
Seattle, Washington – you may not carry a concealed weapon that is over six feet in length.
Tennessee – driving is not to be done while asleep.
Trout Creek, Utah – pharmacists may not sell gunpowder to cure headaches.
Vermont – women must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth.
Washington – it is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering the town.
West Virginia – roadkill may be taken home for supper.
Wilbur, Washington – you may not ride an ugly horse.

LOL....somehow I could envision many of the folks here (in their states) considering this.

For example..I dare Nate and Andrew to challenge the duck law by doing it. I can actually see these two going for it. Nate would be the one wearing the duck and Andrew would be filming...lol

Sounds like the gas station should be liable for any damage. You told them premium, they put in regular.

I'd call them to task. Then again, I'm always calling companies to task. So far it has paid off every time.

I thought about that too.
Without proof, it may be difficult to get anywhere.
Depends on the company, so aren't too anxious to step up to the plate.

If the plugs are the only damage, I think I can handle the 12 bucks.

I bought replacements 2 hours ago.

Can't wait to autopsy the car this weekend.
Oregon is much more serious about weapon brandishing based on the "victims" accusations. I got a black semi auto pistol pointed out a chevy malibu'* window last October on the freeway over some minor lane disagreements/hand gestures and the Illinois state troopers didn't do anything about it besides take a report and give me the choice to press charges my word against his....

EDIT:

I really should read page 2 before replying. Good thing it was just plugs.

Bill, so you know they put in 87? Based on the price on the receipt (which should say the price per gallon)?
