    Service mechanics hugonga serious,
    Fanya hapa sample ya wasee huchajiwa how much for service na saa hizo ni oil filter, air filter na oil pekee zinakuwa changed. Akichange spark plugs bei inaongezeka. Ukiona wasee wanaongea story ya ku import their own parts jua wamechoka.

    Far from it.
    Before fuel is dispensed, the pump must fill up the hose (priming).
    So in essence, the fuel present in the hose (from 1-3) belongs to the owner of the filling station.
    Now to the science behind it:
    Ideal liquids are incompressible (Fluid Flow topic). Therefore, the volume of fluid entering the hose at 1 must displace an equal volume at 3 (which is a loose description of the equation of continuity).
    Thus you do not lose any fuel in the process.
    [In retrospect, you must have thought of fuel dispensing as similar to draining a water pipe after disconnecting it from a pump. In case of filling stations, the pipe is never disconnected.]

    However, while priming the hose, extra care is taken to ensure no air is trapped in it, because air (which is a gas) is compressible. This way, you will lose fuel. This is why there is a glass section either at the Nozzle IMG_20180113_095231_382.jpg
    or at the base IMG_20180113_095144_389.jpg of the hose with two or three metal bearings to help us ensure that there isn't any trapped gas in the hose.
    I hope your question has been answered.

    Speaking of which I just realized I go for 500+km on full tank 2.4l engine.local running I never go beyond 80kmph and if I do only when overtaking... Is this good or bad.

    I thought that it is the other way round?
    A manual car doing 60kph on 5th gear will consume less than it would if it were in 3rd gear at the same speed ....
