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).

depends on the station's reputation. The filters in the pumps remove any sludge. However if they have a reputation for water in the past I avoid them anyway.

Who cares if it agitates the sediment? Does the pump not have a filter also?

Sure why not? The gas is filtered at the pump to keep out the sediment from the tanks.

Most modern dispensers like OPW, Gilbarco, etc. have a filter in-line, but I have yet to see a station changing one out, except for Costco.

moreorless says, "No, the stations are required to wait 15 minutes after the tanker is done before they can sell gas. "

i call BS on that... prove it w/ a link or stop feeding mis-information

Yes, that is a myth. Pumps have their own fuel filters
