So true, at VIR, the pump didnt automatically stop so it overflow the tank. It happened so several other people as well. And yes in the heat of the moment, all those racecars driving by and the adrenalin inside, you just want to get in to the car and go and forget if you closed the tank or not.

However i never thought it would happen because my tank has this metal piece that you have to push to put the nozzle in. i thought that would disable gas from coming out. maybe its in the newer cars?
