That sucks, especially if there are lines at the pump. Plus, if I want to fill up I don't know how much money it will need.

That being said, I pay at the pump.

I always pay at the pump. If the card reader won't work I will drive across the street and fill up. I usually get gas at the local station for my work vehicle (requires receipt). When the pump said see clerk for receipt, I went in to get it and told them "if I ever have to come in here again, I will buy my 3-400 dollars a month worth of gas somewhere else". So far, they have kept the paper filled!

I usually pay at the pump myself with my debit/credit card...its alot faster and you don't have to fuck around and go inside :shotgun:

Might keep alot of thieves in check. I also pay with a credit card so I rarely go in the station. I don't like the idea of another personal piece of ID, like your drivers liscence, being seen by who knows who. They can say only so and so sees your info or no one sees it, :idk: Shit goes wrong all the time with personal information.

This will keep the honest people honest. Till, somebody steals your id and uses it to steal gas. Cause with that, they won't look twice at ya knowing they have "your" id info.

Good point Chris. Kinda what I was reffering to. There are scumdbags everywhere that will do whatever they can for a free ride. I just think the less info you give the less chance you have of getting burned by them. Even though it may cause some incovenience at the pump or anywhere for that matter. Still a no thanks for me on the liscence scan. :td:

Take it from a guy who’s been a victim of credit card fraud2X.
Don’t give out any info you don’t have to.

Oi vey.. the poor little pumpkinheads can just waltz in and prepay. This is asking for someone to nick your id and use it to lift gas.
