Hey there. I was filling up my car when I noticed some MC Cable at a gas station hooked up to an intercom. I've never wired a gas station before, maybe this guy hadn't either. What do you think?

Well, the MC is outside of the classified area, however:

I wonder where they made the transition from MC cable to wire (You don't suppose it's in the sealing fitting, do you?)
The plumber's bell reducer, lack of strapping, and possible weather problems add a nice touch though, don't they?...S

FWIW, there are listed reducing couplings intended for the application. www.appletonelec.com/PDF/I-3-19.pdf#I19 [No comment on the “flex.”]
