    So everyone here who is calling him a dumbass/douche/asshole/retard... whatever it may be has never 'accidently' left a gas cap off, or perhaps forgot something else, done something dumb...etc, and can honestly say they are so perfect, it will never happen in their lifetime? Cmon..... The guy/girl was an idiot once, I'm not too sure he deserves all that. Shit happens. Bluefield, points in the book of good karma.

    The more I thought about it after reading all the responses, the more I started thinking along the same line. I've never personally left my gas cap off, dangling from the side, or drove away from a pump with the handle still in the gas tank though

    We all do stupid shit, I'm glad it's just never been with my car...YET.

    When I managed a gas station many moons ago, I saw this shit ALL THE TIME. It was amazing...especially the pulling away with the nozzle still in the tank.

    I would have left it alone, there is no telling what could have happened had he walked out and saw you jacking around with his car.

    How do we know somebody wasn't trying to siphon his gas either? Unlikely, but not out of the realm of being possible. Bluefield was right on. We'd all want the same done if it were us.

    I've gotten 2 write ups in 2 1/2 years. One was for not showing up for work and the other was for habitual tardiness. hahaha

    ^^^now that would suck supremely. Can the new Camaro gas cap be opened from outside, or is it with an internal car release?

    No, it's a spring loaded fuel door, just like on the Suburbans/Tahoes/Avalanches. You just push the gas door and it pops out, push it again and it goes back in.

    I hear ya... even when you're trying to do something nice, everyone always assumes the negative. It's almost like you have to sneak around to do nice things anymore.

    Ain't that the truth. I have shut people's headlights off before, and I'm always looking around wondering if someone is going to report me as a thief.

    I would have wanted to put the cap back on. Depends on what kind of mood I would have been in whether I would have or not.

    I like Olive Garden, but rarely eat there. Too long of a wait and no reservations bumps them as a choice.

    I just ate at the local Olive Garden on Sunday. Had the Tour of Italy and a few glasses of their Moscato wine. Good stuff.

    I think the new camaro has a gps built into the gas cap. It actually has a gas cap indicator light on the dashboard. It can tell your speed alternately with the gas cap IF you leave it out of the ve hic le, AND your speedometer cable has an amperage shortage. Extra safety measures taken by GM.

    i only jumped in saying what i did because i have a 2010 now and theres no holder for the gas cap is just kinda dangles...so i open the gas lid and let the cap hang over to the right side...the side of which you cant see the cap except for a small string holding it on.i can easily see why he forgot to put it on

    Not sure if you were serious or not... lol but it isn't a GPS, the PCM just detects fuel vapor leaks, and instead of illuminating the SES light, it has a gas cap light.
