The vapor recovery nozzle boot must be held back,but it's not a hardship.
What would William Shatner say about that?
OK, I've been in the sun too long, let me see if I understand your description. "I ended up inserting the 6" stainless probe of a dial thermometer to hold the detente fuel door open (you're referring to the little spring loaded door in most or all late model gas tank fill necks, yes?) after the first clickoff. (and you insert this tube down the tank fill neck to hold the little door open after the nozzle has kicked itself off the first time)."

Then you proceed to fill up i.e., skyking's description, till the level is static. My beast has no spring loaded fuel door so I don't know why I'm asking other than to assure myself the Alzhymer's isn't getting worse.
