The Wall Pumps Are NOT 10-7!

Every day I hear someone say they can't fuel up on the West Bank
because the Wall Blvd. pumps are supposedly 10-7. And every day, I go
fuel up there with no problem.

I've tried to explain that there is a knack to using the Wall pumps.
They have been quirky for at least 18 years. I'm shocked that the
older employees have forgotten how to use them, or chosen not to
enlighten the newer ones.

Here's the secret gris-gris:
Use PUMP 5!
Use your card, flip the handle, insert the nozzle as usual.
Start fueling, but it will be REALLY slow. Let go of the handle for 10
seconds. Then squeeze it again and it will work fine.

Share the knowledge with others.

I've found that threatening to leave works well, too. That is, if you let go the handle and say, "I guess it's not working. We should leave." Wait a few seconds, then try again. It will work.
