HA! The way you wrote that reminds me of the way a certain exceedingly anal and superior woman customer at the service station I used to work at used to tell us to fill up her 124. In some sort of southern-ish accent it was always "Feel it with Deeeeezel." Man, she was so bent on making sure we knew she was above us in society. Duh.

That job actually was my first exposure to Mercedes diesels. We used to call them "rabid mobies" only because of the foamy nature of diesel. And we could always hear them coming before we saw them, owing to what I now know as the "klatta klatta". They almost invariably came into full serve. Didn't get too nervous around these luxury autos after a while. I remember some unfortunate new employee, however, who left the nozzle in a guy's Jaguar, allowing him to pull away. OOOPS.

Ah, memories. Now I'm a rabid mobiler.

That's probably the one nice thing about not having self-serve gas in
Oregon!  If the moron high-school-dropout pump jockey makes that
mistake, the station owner, not me, will be shelling out the cost of
the necessary repairs.  I've been thinking about this a lot lately
since the station I usually go to (convenient on the way home from
work) seems to have just hired a new batch of said morons, all of whom
need to be told "IT'S A DEEEE-ZEL!" loudly and slowly three or four
times before they get the message and reach for the green-handled
