Ummmm...

I am pretty sure they are designed like that to retrieve vapors released when pumping. Why not just go somewhere else if it's that big of a problem for you. Why do you need to start your bike pumping and walk away anyhow. Just stand there and pump, its a whopping few gallons.

LOL. You in jr high? How did you get a motorcycle license?

For real. I have pumped at many shells on my bike including the one your referring to (west loop southbound feeder @ westheimer) and didnt seem to have an issue. just push the nozzle in all the way like your supposed to and done.

what's your deal with hating on moms? Not enough hugs? Not breast fed?

Anyways, I've only encountered a couple of stations like that. Simple solution was to avoid them as there isn't much else you can do except stand there and shake trying to hold the sleeve back. Maybe more of this with the arm you use to hold the sleeve on the pump.

I'm not doubting this, but do you have any evidence to back this up? I, myself, am a fan of Chevron and go there whenever I can. My mom filled her porsche with nothing but Chevron as the dealer told her to. Plus, I don't have the pump issues I experience with Shell.
experts say that chervon is the cleanest burning fuel used today stats from state emission tests back it up. shell runs a close seccond to chevron but still uses aditives. chevron uses only cleaning aditives called techron. Shell has copied chevron closely and is supposed to be almost identical today with the additives
