    Related to that, I try to use Shell gas in our cars, premium in this case. Don't say that's a waste, both cars are specified to need premium, high HP engines.

    I am positive the older of the two has had a smoother idle and better response since I began using only Shell.

    Here in a town NW of San Antonio, the most convenient Shell has pumps out of order on almost a continual basis, sometimes 2 or 3 pumps. Question the people working at the quick stop and you get the shoulder shrug of "I don't care, don't bother me."

    This is 3rd world bull, it's not rocket science to keep pumps working. Called the Shell distributor, hasn't gotten any better. Don

    Things that waste our time...

    How about leaving a voice message?

    "The number you reached 5-5-5-5-5-5-1-2-1-2 (I know who I effing called) is not available (No ****? Not available you say?), to leave a call back number press one (Who does this?), or just stay on the line. Leave a message at the sound of the beep...........beep."


    Holy crap who doesn't know how to leave a voicemail?

    I can't think of a single thing that comes from NJ that should be held up as a postive example.

    Forcing drivers to pay for some bozo to pump your gas, giving you an inflated price is bureaucratic corruption but NJ is good at that. Don

    I don't know, my wife was pushing hard for Oregon there for a while, when she found out they had to pump your gas for you. :)

    Even here in the boonies of Maine, a lot of the pumps will take cash.
    I've always wondered how much "regular 10% ethanol" gas I get when I select the non-ethanol stuff from the one hose pumps.

    More accurately using a card at the pump. Pay cash inside and get a discount too and avoid all the other angst the OP is experiencing.

    I've not seen one that accepts cash (without going inside and giving it to a clerk).

    No telling on the ethanol situation.

    Except for the convenience of paying at the pump or having to carry around cash or going to an ATM to retrieve cash.... Sure. Not all stations offer a cash discount either.

    You did give me a good idea though about a GT poll to see who actually carries cash anymore.
