The last time I put gas at the local grocery stores gas station the fuel truck was there refueling the tanks... my dad had always said never ever do what I had just done. something about when they refuel the tanks the pressure from the liquid hits the bottom of the tank and stirs up what ever garbage has accumulated on the bottom.... well for over 30 years I'd never paid any attention until one day I did just that and about 30 mins after I left the gas station all I heard was a LOUD BANG and my Sweet Smoking Sally CUT OFF AND I COASTED TO ANOTHER GAS STATION COMING UP ABOUT 2 BLOCKS AWAY....I PULLED IN TRIED CRANKING IT AND SHE FIRED UP AND STARTED SPUTTERING LUCKILY I WAS 5 BLOCKS FROM HOME AND THE ALLEY ACROSS THE STREET LINES UP PERFECTLY WITH MY DRIVEWAY SO I FLOORED IT AND GOT IT UP TO ABOUT 10MPH AND ASBI WAS 2 BLOCKS AWAY.... SWEET SALLY DIED AS I COASTED HER INTO THE DRIVEWAY..... WELL I JUMPED INTO THE OTHER CAR THAT I HAD AND HEAD OFF OUT of town to work... got home 2 weeks later and come to find out the the ignition coil , distributer cap , spark plugs and wires.... all went to HELL .... COINCIDENCE ???? MAYBE DAS WAS RIGHT... I'LL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE WHILE I WAS GONE MY DAD PASSED AWAY.... ANYWAY.. HOPE YOU ENJOYED A BAD STORY , A LAUGH OR CHUCKLE LOL AND MAYBE IT HELPS YOU REMEMBER SOMETHING YOU MIGHT'VE DONE DIFFERENTLY THAT CAUSED THE ISSUE.... THANKS AGAIN AND STAY SAFE OUT THERE WITH THIS COVID B.S..
