Electronics/fuel at a garage.........opinions sought please
« on: February 03, 2016, 08:18:47 pm »
Today was ok, generally because it was sunny. But I was guilty of major good friend failure when asked to help a friend with her wee campervan.

She asked me to come with her to the yard where she stores her van. She bought it in the autumn and then took it for a 1,000 mile tour of the far north (of Scotland). It wouldn't start so the 3 kind gents there plugged it into the mains and we were motoring. We set off and after 8 miles pulled into a garage to fill up. I told her not to turn the ignition off.  She ignored me and after filling up we had to call the RAC.

So four hours later I am home, relieved I could call on another friend at hen bedtime. My choox are ok.

Does anyone know if the warning at garages about turning off your engine before refuelling is important?
