    I was out there in the garage loading some .38 Special. Finished up and decided to mow and weed eat the front lawn before it got too hot. In filling up the weedeater, I inadvertently kicked the thing over. Before I could get it rightside up, I had lost (conservatively estimated) about $1.85's worth of gas. ;) By the time I grabbed my camera to record this awful setback, evaporation had just about got it all.

    Heck, I could have almost eaten breakfast at McDonald's on that much, but such is life.

    Quick put a plastic bag over it to collect the vapor.

    :eek: I never thought about it that way! I accidentally overfilled my lawn mower the other day. I bet I slopped and wasted at least a dollar! :mad: AND, there is no telling how much damage I did to the environment letting those fumes escape! I really must be more careful.:o

    I say this tongue in cheek, but I probably will be more careful with the gas.:rolleyes:
