I will not. I will leave and go get gas somewhere else if I see a tanker unloading at a station I pull into. Unless of course I'm on fumes and have no other choice. I'm convinced they agitate the sediment on the bottom of the tanks when they fill them and I dont need a clogged gas tank / gas line filter(s).

No. I've been told that it won't do any harm, but why take the chance?

Given that I have alternative stations to choose from it has never been an issue.

I've been told by stations that it doesn't matter if the truck is unloading or not. But I think it's too much risk.

Always smart to avoid getting fuel while it's being dropped... especially at the beginning of the drop. 10 minutes afterwards would be a good safe time to wait.

Most underground tanks are fiberglass so little crud can come from the tank but there is always the possibility of a not so clean deliver tanker.
Use to have problems with water, but all dispensers must have a flow limiting filtration system to prevent any significant amount of water from getting in your tank, and with ethanol in the fuel these days it absorbs most and it burns thru your engine.

in NYC they are not allowed to sell gas for 15 minutes (minimum) after they receive a delivery of gas. That's so anything in the tanks can settle back down.

Yes, filters in the gas station system will remove the sediment.
