I was in the car with my sister when she stopped to get gas. She said she hates putting gas in her car because gasoline is stinky.

I thought you meant she hates farting in her car.

I understand how she feels. Gasoline has a very strong and nauseating odor.
But I never have to put gasoline in a car since I don't drive one and I guess I never will. :(

That’s life,if she wants to continue to drive, she have to put gas in the car or it drive,I guess gasoline is feeding the engine.

I am old enough to remember the days when gas stations had guys who pumped the gas for you. Back in the Fifties and Sixties. They would check your oil too.

Actually there are some stations that still have "full service lanes" that do that for you.

But that's the exception not the rule.

It's really very simple, no gas--no go. If your sister really hates the smell of gas enough to let her car run out of it, she either needs to trade it in for an electric car, or electric motor cycle, or switch to riding a bicycle. Hey, those come in electric models, too!

They actually have electric cars? But if it starts to rain while you're driving, won't you get electrocuted? :duh:

I’m 49, I remember them too, they had them in the 80s & 90s, little bit in the early 2000s, me & my mom were in the car. And there were people that wash your car too.

For some reason getting gasoline makes me itchy.
