From my local tire store, who in their defense performs great alignment work:

#1 Your oil is black and needs changing. (Did it two days earlier)

#2 Sir could you come outside for a minute? We can't start your car.

Auto parts store - "Man I sure hope that’s a diesel, or you have some major problems!"

Several gas stations (at least 4)- attendant comes running out "SIR!!! SIR!!!! THATS A DIESEL PUMP!!!" my reply- yes it is.

local "mechanic", took to shop for AC charge - "that thing sounds like it's on its last legs." I promptly left.

I always shut her off on the RARE occasion that I HAVE to eat fast food and use that drive through feature. Probably never anymore with the new interior.
