Do most of it don't accept credit card?

I was at this gas station the other day, it accepted credit cards, but when I swiped it, it said to see cashier or attendent. Anyway, I went to dude and said I wanted to fill up my car at pump #___. He asked me how much do I want? 50 gallon? 100 gallon? I was like, uhh, what the hell? He asked me what kind of truck do I have. I said I have a Mercedes car, not a truck. [:D]

Once, somebody said "That's diesel!!!" I said "Yeah, my car's a diesel" and he said "Oh, OK!!" [:D][:D]

We don't usually have alot of diesel cars here in California. I noticed the pump nozzles of diesels won't fit in fuel tanks of gasoline cars. [?]

They aren't as abundant as gasoline pumps, but I don't have too much trouble finding pay at the pump diesel pumps.

I've got to figure out where to hide everything from my wife. I referred to as"chef of the future". Also as the cheapest guy she ever married. What she calls a reverse snob. I brag about how little I've spent rather than how much.

We're lucky to have a place upstate ( rundown ramshackle originally) and my favorite route is through the Holland Tunnel and up 1&9 for fuel. It doesn't include the horrific taxes charged in NY. A friend formally in the fuel oil biz said they use to use #2 oil for the trucks but it's dyed red so an inspector can spot the use of a non-taxed fuel source. Also a higher cetane ( I think that's how it's rated)value than diesel. When I drove trucks for a living I'd add an extra gal of gas to a full tank of deisel to avoid a gelling problem. Thinking of trying to set-up a wvo filtering whatchamacallit. I'll be using everyone's biofuel links. Keep you updated. Hey, can they tax us on alternative fuels? It's not like I haven't had to avoid the law on some minor scale before ,(mainly speeding) but economies like upstate are crying for new business and everyone has to suffer from outlandish fuel prices. Folks raise their families, pay for autos and homes on $7 & $8 an hour salaries. To cut the fuel price in half would be a blessing.

Yeah, fuels along 1/9 is cheaper than anything in NY. But the problem is that, unless I have a purpose to get out of the city, the toll is a waste of money.
