Re: Oregon motorist billed for ripping off gas pump hose

Sounds fishy. Here in the land of New Jersey, the pumps won't print a receipt either inside or at the pump itself until the nozzle gets put back. So I don't know how the attendant went to get a receipt without returning the nozzle to the pump.

I think it depends on the style of the pump. Older pumps had the manual on/off lever switch. Newer ones did away with the on/off switch and detect when the nozzle is removed and reinserted. I believe the manual style just needed to be switched off, and the nozzle didn't have to be reinserted in order to complete the transaction.
