    If it wasn’t for that pesky red car getting in the way I think he could have made it...

    Sure he could have. He'd have knocked over the fuel pump, knocked the roof support sideways with a resultant cave-in of the canopy, maybe had a pretty good fire going if the emergency pump shutoffs didn't work...but yeah, he could have made it. It would have been really noisy though.
    Maybe we're lucky he hit the car so he didn't try to go any further.
    I'm surprised he hasn't been on TTR complaining about too many obstacles in gas stations. :rolleyes:
