I've experienced the handle pop out. Luckily it was on a rental car. I can appreciate your nervousness.

Are you playing "just the tip" or something?

If you put it all the way in, it's not gonna pop out. Protecting the quarter panel with microfiber is a good idea, but my quarter panel is wrapped so I never sweat it.

After the "attendant" smacked my cap into the fender and chipped the paint nobody else has put a nozzle near my car, but neither am I concerned about the rubber coating on the nozzle doing anything but protecting my paint as it's supposed to. And I'm not sure there's an Aston filler tube you don't have to go pretty much vertical with the nozzle. It's definitely not going anywhere.

Needed my second tank, already. Took it as an opportunity to feature that lovely divide between the green and yellow. (For what it's worth, it does follow the sweep of the quarter glass... I'm not sure how else they could've reasonably divided the colors.)

Also note the only decal that I'll ever put on the car. Was a pain in the *** to apply (the wax paper backing wasn't waxy enough, so the sticker didn't want to separate from the backing), but I like it nonetheless.

thecurbshop[dot]com. If you get one, be very careful when removing the backing, because the letters will get messed up very easily if they stick to the backing too much. It took me at least 10 minutes to get the backing off without ruining the letters.

Love your GT and the sticker. Long live the manual!
