Fuel nozzles

I would like to add the following wording to clarify the maintenance of fuel dispensing devices.  I have had several occasions where the fuel nozzle did not cut off during fueling.  This would just make it easier to enforce and make those corrections.

2306.7.6 Fuel delivery nozzles. Fuel delivery nozzles shall be maintained to prevent accidental or unauthorized discharge and in accordance with the applicable building code.
