Yesterday fellow Woody Boater Rabbit made a wonderful comment regarding judging.. Well, Here is the comment. I would butcher it. ” I judge the quality of my weekends by how much I spend at the gas dock. Use it and use it more.” Which reminded me of a fun thing I like to do to make fueling up more fun. Other than sniffing fuel and looking around. Here is how it goes.
When you pull up to the dock, you call out the amount of fuel needed. Seems simple right? Well, it is. But knowing our fuel gauges are anything but accurate. And knowing that its a but of an art, in lies the drama. So. YOU CALL OUT THE AMOUNT. In the case below, I called out BOLDLY..35 gallons.
OK, now, it has to click off on its self. That’s the other part. Of course if it clicks off too early you can play it. Now, I bet a bunch of us, you… Know roughly what you’re going to need. We all have internal fuel gauges based on our regular use.
Now in this specific case, which is why there is even a story on this dumb thing, is that I normally take around 20 gallons, and I felt like I had used it a couple trips more. I hold 60 Gallons. And well… 34, 34.5, 34.8 And BAM! Right on Que! No..1 or point 4 Right on the money! BTW, its all non ethanol!
