    4. Pump gas at the low-speed rather than the high-speed setting because the latter causes more agitation, thus more evaporation?

    It does seem logical to assume that the higher the speed of the pump the more it may agitate the fuel, causing more evaporation. But consider this: the longer it takes to pump the fuel the more evaporation can occur too, so any benefits to pumping at the slower speed are probably negated.
    Ah.... haha! Well can't blame a man for trying

    None of which excuses "the pumps aren't accurate".

    Beijing had it sussed a while back, with nine million bicycles if Katie Melua was on the money, but now it's all gone to hell in a variety of petrol-driven carts.

    It's a shame that car-clogged roads are seen as a sign of progress,

    Pollution is pretty bad again today, I could smell it in the air as soon as I set foot out the house. Visible mist too. It isn't nice.

    There was no air here yesterday and a thick layer of dust on everything. I have bad hayfever at the moment and the air quality is not improving matters especially with my eyes.

    Seems OK here although we are in a "high" zone. My car is coated in the Sahara though. I am an asthmatic so I think I should be allowed to go home

    My breathing is at the worst it has been for at least 12 months. I'd managed to get my Ventolin use down to once every couple of weeks - I've had to use it multiple times in the last few days. The air just feels thick, like breathing a liquid. Eugh.
