Filling up skis in New Jersey
I was wondering how you guys go about gassing the skis there when you are not allowed to pump your own fuel. I know it would be funny to explain to an attendant how to go about fueling my skis on a double trailer.
"OK, what you want to do is leave that hatch open so the hose will reach the other ski and while standing with one foot in the skis footwell and the other foot on the trailer crossmember lean over and depress the lever 50% because if you pull it fully fuel will be forced back out at you due to the trapped air".

LOL, forgot about that and how long it can take to get gas, waiting on the attendant.
"Yes, I said FILL IT, not five."

dont criticize man... jersey has cheap gas
us New Yorkers, everytime we're on the other side of the bridge we fill up. there's more NYers at a jersey gas station than their are people from jersey, lol...
less tax on fuel
less insurance premiums for the gas station business due to less risk of the consumer pumping their own gas...
i only go to a certain gas station near my house bc it's cheaper than everywhere else that is self serve, AND this guy is cash or credit same price full serve no matter what.... i'm not sure i'd be arguing with the fact that i get to keep my heat and radio going and sit my ass in the car and let some other fool do my dirty work

the only station thatmakes any attempt to fuel up my ski is a new wawa here. I simply laugh and say no no no, I`ll get it, they make me wear safety glasses and tried to give me some dorky glasses, then I whip out my Joe cool safety specs for work and were in bizness
yeah, no way in hell is anybody fueling up my machines...

We have a station here that specializes in filling skis, it's called JET-PUMP.
When I pull up with the two RXT's they send out three gorgeous girls in red bikinis, one of them pumps gas, the other checks air pressure in your trailer tires and the third one... oh geez, It's still early I was dreaming...

I pull up and say "The Usual".
They fill my ski's tank and then check it's oil.
