I'm very surprised the hose was that strong. I thought they had break-away sections that also shut down the pump so gas wouldn't spew all over the place until the attendant realized what was going on and shut down the pump.

A little poking around shows the break-away hoses don't always work right.

Intel Security has published a white paper(PFD) on hacking cars of the future.
Not cures, but reminders to designers and manufactures, what they'll have to contend with in their designs.

That reminds me to finish hardening my car against hackerz. I have disabled OnStar and some other points of attack but have not gone into the computer to disable some others.

Jeep, used...

About 30 years or so ago ... It was January or February - very cold... I was, as always at that point in my life, stoned out of my mind. It was late at night after working a 10 hr shit at Bennigan's and then partying at a friends. I stopped to get gas. I paid the man - put the nozzle in the car and it was so cold, I got in my car to stay warm. Well that lasted about ten seconds when I then drove away. It wasn't until the next morning I realized the handle/nozzle was still sticking out of my car. No damage at all to my vehicle.

I love it that we live in a world where things like that have existed.

There's just no killing this Volvo:

I thought for sure that I'd posted this before. After re-reading the entire thread, I guess not:

Not a lot of snow there any more.

Wow, that is one tough fucking Volvo!

Gravdigr 09-24-2015 02:52 PM

Ain't it, though?

Reminded me of 'Top Gear' trying (unsuccessfully) to kill that old Toyota pick-up...

Yes. the "Hilux".
