Is the pump handle circumcised or uncircumcised ??

Poor C7 owners needing to stand there for a few minutes holding a dirty gas pump handle. The horror but there's an answer! NEW! Grand sport gas filling glove to keep the most **** owner at ease while filling his tank.

Got it! Thanks - real pain in the ***!!

I have issues now and again and I read somewhere to turn the nozzle up side down. Believe it or not it works.
So, the car is below a 1/4 tank and I have this issue, I try to pump the fuel, the fuel pump shuts down, I rotate the handle 180 degrees and it has yet to shut off. This happened again yesterday when I was done to an 1/8 of a tank.

Luckily I was there and shut it off manually, but I got gas on my pants and shoes too.

Just a word of caution - if you do the upside down method, make sure you stick around and don't leave it.
My method is safer! Tripping happened about 20% of the time in my 2014 C7 and has a few times in my new Grand Sport when I just insert the nozzle. When it happens I hold the handle and turn in 90 degrees CCW. Can set at max flow.

It has always shut off BUT "just-in case" I'm holding anyway. NBD, it's not like I am filling up an 18 wheeler!
