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).

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

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.
