Mine, too. There was a Lotus at every pump, never saw that before. The one driving by was a bonus.

That pic gives me a chuckle! Aside from its wonderful awesomeness for having multiple Lotus generations at the pumps, the Esprit is the source of the chuckle. That appears to be an '86 or '87...I used to have an '86 and found that having the pump-nozzle in that position made for a SLOW fill-up! But if I held it such that the hose protruded vertically up from the nozzle, the flow went more smoothly into the filler and the nozzle wouldn't shut off as much. Opening BOTH fillers also helped a bit. The Plus 2 I have now is so much easier to refuel! :mrgreen:
