Post Natural Gas Line Markings? 
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about deciphering the meaning of natural gas line markings the gas company paints in yellow on your property. I'm doing some fence work on my house, and even though my house is electric, I know there are gas lines in the area I'll be working (digging holes for fence posts, etc.) So, I called the local utilities to come out and mark everything, and apparently the gas company came out when I was not home today and put some markings in my yard. The only problem is, I don't know what the markings are indicating as far as which way the gas lines run, either through my back yard to the outside street or towards the front of my lot to the street there (I know the water lines run this way). I shot a quick video illustrating all this, so if anyone knows how to decipher these markings, I would appreciate the input.

But seriously...

I think I have it figured out now. The other utility providers have come out now and marked their spots, and I've determined that what I'm doing won't be interfering with anything. So, I believe I'll be good.

Edit: YouTube video in original post now removed.

It's a good thing you had them mark, and keep your CBUD (Call Before U Dig) ticket on you. If you do wind up hitting something that's about the only thing that will save you from paying for the repairs and your homeowner's insurance will probably not cover it. Bad stuff, hitting underground utilities and that's not even covering the more obvious problem of having whatever you hit either fry you or blow up on you.

Agreed completely. Always better to be safe than sorry, especially with something serious like that.

So I have a 91 CRX Si, and I cant put more than 3 gals of gas into the tank before the nozzle clicks, or gas spews everywhere. What could be the issue?


Thanks

Two problems, one you are posting on an automobile site and not a ricer site and two, your fuel line vent is clogged or damaged. The vent line typically runs from the tank to the pipe where the gas cap goes in. It may run to the charcoal canister.
