I donít have to worry about this in NY , itís against the law (NY fire code) to lock and walk away from your car , cell phone use while pumping is a $500 fine also .
I use to lock the pump all the time for years but havenít done it in a long time , I never had this problem with auto shut off with my M6 GC either itís a 15 .

I never would go far but it's nice to at least wash the windshield, stretch my legs, etc. get your point tho. Don't love touching the nasty handles any longer than I have to so it's annoying. NY actually handing out tickets for phone use? Phones while driving illegal and far more dangerous than pumping gas, yet I see people on phones while driving more often than not, it seems...

I never seen a ticket but there are signs posted on the pump it is illegal, I guess If your on the phone pumping gas there is a possibility of a spark or fire from the phone ,I find it unlikely but I guess it is possible, Its just another way to generate money for the city if they want to highly enforce it .

Same issue for me with my 15 M4 and happens with my 15 M6. It doesn't always happen. I don't do anything different. Sometimes it fills right up. Sometimes it doesn't.

I'm not sure there's ever been a proven, documented case of a fire starting in a petrol station as a result of someone using a mobile phone. It's far more likely a fire could be started as a result of a static discharge. Unless I cling onto the metal part of the door when I alight from my car, I get a terrible static electric shock. It's often so bad you can actually HEAR it zap across from my fingers!
