My thought is that having seen cars and trucks driving around with detached gas pump nozzles (and their hoses up to the pump) still stuck in their gas tank openings is that THAT isn't the explanation for that truck.

Wait, was that in response to the "tree-chipper" or the previous image post? :)

Wouldn't it depend on the strength of the material the vehicle is made of, the strength of the hose, and the side of the car the pump is on?

Tree chipper. If I ever am responding to a post other than the one immediately above my post, I will give a better reference to make it clear.

I believe that there is a standardized point in the US designed to break off if you drive away with the nozzle still inserted.

How the hell can someone keep driving down a road with a gas hose flopping behind them?

Actually, probably not. I think in the US most gas station nozzles and their hoses are designed to break off should someone accidentally drive off with it still inserted (um, as MacAddict4Life wrote).

You can see in some of the pictures in my Google-search link that most of the cars aren't models that one would describe as particularly...um, "tough" in design.

Maybe one of these got outraged that THAT truck wasn't a Tesla?

You, too, can hug a warm cloud every morning for only $400.

Amazing how much you can pay for a spigot.

However:

It's really not a joke.
Eh, fine nozzles need to better engineered so they won't clog or corrode shut, i.e. made from the better grades of stainless steel. There should be a prefilter to trap any crud before it gets to these fine nozzles. I'll look at their website later and see if they've got the engineering done right.

The water savings would be nice, not sure if its worth $400 though.

I await Kirk's verdict.
Sorry but my company's firewall blocks Nebia's web site. Are there semi-nude models or something? It will have to wait for me to get home.

The idea of using finer nozzles is a good one. How they implement it is the important detail here. Though I'll be surprised if there aren't already other company's offering equivalent shower heads, possibly for cheaper. I should probably go check on those options too. I could certainly use a reduction in my monthly water bill and save CA some water.

From someone who has witnessed it firsthand: the hose on the pump will give out waaaaaay before you could do that kind of damage. Stupid co-worker did it once, gassing up the delivery van was the last thing you did before you parked it and punched out, he didn't even realize the hose was still there until he parked it.

The website is wired. No semi-nude models.

I really am not a fan of the water sensation, so I might actually be willing to pay that premium for that, assuming a well-made product. I'd want to try it out first.

I'm probably your opposite in terms of water sensation. I prefer strong streams from my showerhead so that "cloud" shower would likely drive me up the wall in that I would get out feeling unclean.
