I've had that happen to me several times in the US and it drives me crazy Jim! Mind you, it's not as bad as when you want to pay cash and they ask "how much fuel do you want"...How do I know, I simply want to fill the tank up until it can't take anymore! So I have to walk in, hand over a pile of cash, and then go back in again to retrieve what I didn't use. Come on now, have a little faith, you do after all have my face and license plate on candid camera!


A gas attendant reminded me about the postal code trick and I tried it at a BP in North Carolina and it worked. She did tell me though that it works less often as you go further south.


So I confirmed it works, twice. At a BP in NC and a Texaco in FL.
