$4.59/Gallon Gas

The Puzzler


RAY: I was on a holiday recently and my car was in need of petrol.

I was on a secondary road, and I turned into a self-service gas station. I pulled up to one of the minipumps, and absentmindedly reached for the nozzle.

I was just about to fill up my tank, when I happened to notice that the gasoline was a little expensive.

In fact, it was $4.59 a gallon. I said, "Whoa. What kind of vehicle uses this stuff?"

I looked around. There was a vehicle on the lift and I knew immediately why this gasoline was $4.59 a gallon. I went to one of the other pumps and filled up with the cheaper stuff.

Here's the question: What did I see?
