Thanks for stopping to lend a hand. Yesterday I left work at about 6:00pm or so, and headed off on my normal route home from Hawthorn, along the Monash. I knew I was going to need to get soem fuel when I got off at Ferntree Gully Rd but wasn't at all worried as I was sitting on 310kms and had not yet gone to reserve. This is quite normal . Anyway, I get close to Warrigal Rd and the expected little cough happened, where upon I reach down the the reserve tap to flick it over. If you get it over within about 15 seconds of the first little prop, she'll go to reserve and the engine won't miss a beat. However.......... For some reason I couldn't turn the tap around, kept trying, kept trying, got a little confused. All this whilst still trying to negotiate the peanut gallery we affectionately call the "cagers". I thought to myself, "well maybe I'm trying to turn it the wrong way" - nah. That's it, she dies. Pulled over, fiddled with the tap, put it on reserve, but of course no good. Anyway, I eventually got it to fire again and I just thought it was me. Off I go, over the top of Warrigal Rd, past the outbound on ramp and she dies again. This time I knew I was screwed. Pulled over again and there I stopped. Called Tam who grab the Gerry Can and got some PULP for me. Enter stage right - FireEagle. She pulled over to see if I was OK or needed some help. But she did so not knowing who I was or even that I was a Netrider. She did say that as she pulled up she saw my plate and thought to herself that I probably was Doonks. Anyway, chat for about 10 mins or so and off she went again. So thanks FireEagle for stopping to lend some assistance, it was most appreciated.
