I just put the nozzle in upside down always seems to work to avoid spilling gas all over my feet.

Yeah, what newtothe02 said. I rotate the handle to about 10-11 o'clock and push the bellows in with my knee. Pump slowly.

I've been often curious how the New Jersey cars are handled.

For those who don't know, you can't pump your own gas in the great state of NJ. Considering the contortions I have to put myself in to fill up in CT, I have to think fillups in NJ might be a heroic experience...

Anyway, back on topic... I had a leak in the rubber fill neck that splashed gas around during fillups. While a perfect example of these cars is difficult to fill cleanly, it's worth investigating, regardless. It's a piece of cake to remove the clamp to check it and worth the peace of mind!

Patience is the key. I just take my time, with a rag under the filler and only pull the lever 1/4 to 1/2 way. Never really had a problem, cause' fuel on the paint would suck. Sure, it takes a a while, but it gives one time to reflect on how everyone points at them when they drive by!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
