Don't feel bad, Shake. If the truth be known I'd wager that the majority of us have forgotten to turn the fuel on AT LEAST ONCE

The embarrassment comes when you're setting on the side of the road trying to figure out why the engine shut down. Actually I think there is an old thread about it here somewhere.
