Gas Bib

[6/23/2001] Reviewed by: John Starr -

I think it should be called a "gas PUMP bib". I bought it to save my paint from my careless handling of the gas pump handle. It is effective at that. However, it has caused even more damage to my wax job (again due to my carelessness) than I thought possible. Because it is rubber, it sometimes grabs the gas cap when screwing it back down. On occasion, it is not secure, allowing gas to slop out.

If you want it to prevent gas spills, don't bother. If you need it to reduce paint scratches, it is worth it.

Gas Bib from MM Marketing

This is an absolute waste of $10. What a ridiculous invention. My wife bought this for me and, luckily for me, doesn't take things too personally when I told her there was NO WAY I was going to put that on my car. It is a flimsy piece of rubber that isn't even large enough to deflect gas droplet from the car. All it does is protect about a inch or so around the rear quarter panel. I have had my 10AE for a year now and have NEVER spilled any gas on it because I am careful. Now, that didn't cost me anything. I just twist the nozzle so that it faces in the air and then quickly place it back into the pump. Simple. Doesn't take any time to install. Didn't cost me anything extra. And no one will laugh at me like they would if they saw that stupid piece of rubber sticking out of my car.

A small piece of rubber that fits around the gas tank opening to protect the car from gas drips.

Okay, I know that it sounds silly. A little piece of rubber that costs ten bucks. Not only that, it has a silly name! I got no crap from my wife when I told her that I wanted one for Christmas.

I must say, it is hard to cough up ten smackers for this little bib, but since having one, I've saved my paint (and money for an immediate car wash) on three occasions. The little bib is simple to install, and folds neatly away when you're done. I hate to say it, but I RECOMMEND THE BIB!
