Depends on the state and the prepaid taxes involved in that state.

Have you ever encountered a situation where the guy filling up your station from the truck has ever put the wrong octane into the wrong underground pump containers? If so, how would it get corrected, if at all, or would you just let it slide until the next fill up? I have never inspected or researched this, but I have a feeling it's happened before, unless there is some kind of fail safe special nozzle attachments for each individual octane/pump/container.

Is it true that you will get extra sediment in your gas if you fill up when gas is being delivered to the station?

Question #2

What is the range, percentage wise, of what wholesale gas cost, taking into consideration the state, and some of the prepaid taxes that have been involved in that particular state.

Just give me a number dude. If gas is $3.99 a gallon what are you paying?

do you charge 100$ for putting back the gilbarco gas hand pumps when people drive away with it in the gas tank and disconnect them?

I know for a fact it has not happend to me. It would throw off inventory, and my books and would catch it immediately. One time though my 10,000 gallon super tank was full and there was about 200 gallons of super left on the truck, I said **** it and had him dump it into the regular tank. Customer won that time lol

Not with modern filtration systems, and im anal retentive about changing my filters constantly. And with the way the terminals are set up these days, gas is much cleaner than it was when these wives tales started.

Thank GOD for those break aways. Saved my ass twice lol. Each time that happened they just popped right back in. Those nozzles and lines are way more than a $100 these days, I stay away from gilbarco since there quality is slipping imo.

True story before breakaways my father had a full service station and some lady ripped the pump right out of the ground. Started a fire and did $45,000 in damage.

what is the markup on gas? why does it fluctuate so much? is the quality of gasoline different from shell, exxon, and your local mom/pop no-brand gas station?

Can I get free gas?


Do you have any grocery stores/costco/sams club type places near you to compete? Does that hurt you a lot?

Ever since like 10 years ago they removed the little lever that kept the gas handle fully open, therefore you could click it in and not have to hold the handle.

1. What is the reason? Other than some gas overflow, I don't see why this convenient little lever was removed.
2. What is the best device that you know of than can keep the handle/pump fully engaged. Don't say the gas cap, its attached to car and works like shiit lol

How accurate are the meters for determining the amount of fuel pumped?

Do you sell more or less gas (or the same) when prices go up quickly?
