OK... How do you pump gas.

Hold your laughs, I'm new to the motorbike world and I just had my first visit to the gas pump.

I know some states can be different but where I am in NY, the rubber surrounding the gas pump needs to go up to a certain height before the safety is off and the gas will flow.

I can't get the pump far deep enough into the gas tank hole for that to happen so I had to use my hand to pull it up. As a result while pumping little drops of gas ricochets out, making a mess of my hands and tank.

So how do you properly fill a tank without making a mess?

What I've learned over the years is to gently squeeze the fill handle lever just enough so the gas goes into the tank slowly, instead of all over the outside of it.And it works!!!But that's me and as you guys should know by now " I AIN'T TOO BRIGHT" !! lol lol
