Gas station people telling me the gas door is locked.

I pull into a gas station, tell the man to fill it up, he says "can you unlock the gas door for me"? I reply "it's not locked" then he says "well then it's stuck" I get out to see what the problem is, and it opens with ease. Next fill up same thing happens, "can you unlock your gas door"? "IT DONT LOCK!!" I get out of the car, and again it opens with ease.

Am I the only one who didn't know the gas door is locked as long as the car doors are locked? lol

When I opened my door (unlocking it) to show the moron it opens very easy I was unlocking the gas door at the same time.

Funny stuff.

I didn't know that either, and I probably never would since I am the one filling it up. Interesting!

My smart came with a secret Book of Knowledge. Now that I've read it I will sell it to anyone for a small amount of gold- It's title is very obscure but seems to translate to something like "smart Owner's Manual". I think that must be some kind of code.................

How many of you spent time looking for the button to unlock the gas cap before you realized there wasn't one? :)

I knew about it. My dealership went over it with me when I got my car and it's in the owners manuel.

yea.... the sales person at my dealership (Devon. *sigh*) went over it with me, too. Quite a feature-packed micro-car, it is.

If you hit the unlock button on your dash or hit the key unlock button twice, the gas cap will's like the back window & door.
