e: ... i swallowed my first mouthful of gasoline today ... wow that's bad ...
... i have two cans of gas and no decent spout ... so i tried the oklahoma credit card, a hose ... my first attempt was a success ... and i was able to put a few gallons in [the truck] no problem ... but then when i was trying to fill the tank on [the pump], i couldn't get it to flow ... it would only start and stop ... so after a dozen attempts i went back to [the truck] to top it off ... and that is when i inhaled, and swallowed, a mouthful of gasoline ... nice big gulp ... and then out through the nose ... wowoowowow ... just like wasabi.

e: ... i told this story to the [rancher's brother] ... he said my problem was that i didn't clear hose between uses ... he said you have to either blow through the hose or swing it ... he said i had gasoline somewhere in the middle of the hose ... which is why i couldn't get the steady stream ... and why i swallowed the gasoline ... good to know.
... also ... i don't know if you're supposed to inhale when you suck ... i will find out and report back ... (though i'm not eager to try again real soon.)
