Cash can be lost or stolen. If a thief runs off with a cashier's check made out to somebody else, I think he's going to have a hard time cashing it. If the "seller" holds you up, you should have a...

I just bought a car for $2,700 for my son to drive. My banking in online-only, so I went to the ATM several times. That was a lot of $20 bills.

What do you do? Fill it partially, warm the engine, check the oil, and add some more? I've only done that when the capacity was unknown. If it says 3.75 qt, I'm pouring in 3.75 qt.
