Oh, I know. My little 1-gal jug didn't like the excessive pressure the pump unleashed. The pump hadn't done that, in the past, so I ended up getting it on my hand and ground.

I was born, in '68. We thought nothing of using gasoline and bare hands to clean parts, get road oil off vehicles, etc. I wear gloves, anytime I work on anything, now. Funny, how things change.
