Why is it that the 'Intelligent' lock-on which is available in many countries isn't available in UK?

If you get sick of standing and waiting to get a full tank, you ought to try filling up an LPG tank and it only holds 75 litres.

Truck pumps still have the feature, the lever is still there, but the latch has been removed, have had the pump turned off on me a couple of times when they have sees the cap holding the handle, Elf and Safety Rolling Eyes same shut off mechanism as the truck pump. Confused

If you want to use the existing catch in the fuel pump handle a pop rivet of the right size fits in neatly in the hole at the back of the handle and replaces the bar that is removed on uk pumps to stop the pump being held on.
 D4 2016 Landmark, Waitomo Grey.
D3 2005 HSE, Bonatti Grey, lots of work done but still going strong.

Not necessarily. It's the cause of a lot of fires in the US, where when people return to the nozzle and then discharge static electricity onto the nozzle and the spark ignites fuel vapour from the tank. I imagine that it's highly unlikely with diesel, but it certainly works with unleaded!

 Sept โ€˜17 Full Fat poorly and it's been off the road for the last 33 days and counting Sad
Thatโ€™s ยฃ104,000 worth of my dream (nightmare?) car slowly deteriorating in the dealerโ€™s compound, with no idea of when / if Iโ€™ll ever see it again.
In despair!
