Gas Pumping Heater

InventionTom WalmaComment

I was freezing cold pumping gas today at a ridiculously slow gas pump.  It got me to thinking, why can't my car have a vent near my gas cap that blows heat or air conditioning out of the car onto me when I'm pumping gas? 

If people will pay for an automatic car starter so they don't have to scrape their windshields and then get in a cold car, why wouldn't they also pay for the convenience of not having to freeze to death when pumping gas?  I'd pay at least $100 for it.  And if there is a slight chance it will ignite the fuel and cause my car to explode, I'd risk it.
