I’m glad that we are finally getting self-serve pumps in Taiwan. Some gas stations have one or two lanes of pumps dedicated for self-serve customers. It’s great and all but I hate that they removed the nozzle locking clips… Previously, I’ve only ran into shenanigans like that in Canada, and a few gas stations in New Zealand.
Here in Taiwan though, they do this at EVERY gas station, and remove the nozzle locking clip from every self-serve pump. WTH would you do that?
It’s not like they don’t have these nozzle locking clips on other pumps. All the non-self-serve pumps have them, and the kids filling your gas put the clips to use all the time.
This gas station that I go to all the time recently replaced their old nozzles, and I noticed the new nozzles still have the nozzle locking clips intact. So I used it, and walked around to inspect my car. A gas jockey saw me, and I could immediately feel he is calling his coworkers over, pointing at my pump and discussing intensely.
The next time I am at the pumps, the clips were removed.
Somebody tell me why?
