There was Rosemary Smith first in a Jaguar, followed within a few days I think by Nolan on a bike.

They used have a yoke on petrol pump that held lever open till tank was full. It would then turn off pump.

Not many can afford to fill up every time now.

What about Tiger tokens in Esso garages. I had company car at the times and was doing about 35000 miles a year. Got rake a of stuff off them.

Last thing. What about White dog shit - dont see that any more

I fill up every time. There is an automatic cut off on the "gun" when your tank is full.
