I always thought there was a little elf inside the nozzle that signaled the dwarfs in the underground gas mine to stop pumping.... huh, go figure.

No so "complex" but very interesting indeed.

Now explain how gas prices are set, not even Nobel winning economists know. They just say, that the oil companies don't say.

That's one of the worst explanation videos I've ever seen.
Shure they explain the basic pri8nciple, but did anybody really know now how it works.

Why does the Venturi Tube change pressure and how is the little tube connected to the venturi tube....the schematics are more confusing than helping explain this thing!

So there was me expecting to find out how the gas stoves and gas boilers shut off when there is no flame in a fail safe fashion. And instead I find a video about petrol.
