<VV> Strange economy run

I've never done an econo run. Until very recently, my filler neck would
leak (on the convert) if I filled it too far. I've gotten in the habit of
stopping the pump the moment I hear a gurgle. I figured THAT (leaky neck)
would put me at a *bit* of a disadvantage in an econorun. It is fixed now,
so maybe I'll try one - just for grins.
So, I am not familiar with the rules. But, it would seem that a participant
who will not cooperate with a valid request of the event
organizer/master/whatever, should rate a DQ on the event.
