This happened to me at the Sunoco at Williams and Airport. Guy was like we need to get to White Lake and then Troy and only have a gallon of gas. I gave him a couple gallons. He told me to stop after I got after two gallons. I thought that was kinda weird, and also when they left they weren't going towards White Lake. Next time that happens, I won't be so nice about it.

I did this once. Had a guy ask for cash for gas. Told him I had it covered and put 2 gallons of diesel from the tank in my truck in his POS car

This. I work in detroit and you're pretty much guaranteed to have a spook ask you for some change or a smoke when you stop at the gas station down here. The strategy I've always used is when they start asking beat them to the punchline and ask them for change first. They always look dumbfounded

I would just agree to pay for some gas for him if he pumps it himself. When he is done pumping get in your car and leave without paying. He can drive off which would suck for the station but he wont be back.

Had someone to this to me at a station near work a few months back. He said he just needed to get across town. He offered to give me his watch for gas too. It looked decent LOL. I gave him like 3 bucks and told him that would get him across town and to keep his watch.
If he was scammin he didn't get me for much LOL

Why would the gas station workers allow this? I'd be pissed.

a) if they just work there, they probably don't care

b) too busy to notice what's happening

If someone approached me like that I am pretty sure I would be irritated and potentially intimidated if it was a dude. I wouldn't think that a business would want their customers harassed.

I'm not disagreeing, just saying that if I was sitting behind the counter making just over min. wage as an employee, where this guy being there is not effecting my pay, I probably would not go out and chase the person off. If I was the manager or owner, I probably would.

Just wont run. Tank and lines would need to be emptied and flushed out. Gas in a diesel will cause damage I believe because of the huge cylinder pressure.

Next time Mr. Deadbeat asks for some spare gas, toss him a bag of frozen brussel sprouts and drive off.

I should take the "I" out of that statement, but I believe the majority of low paid persons sitting behind the counter would do just that, yes.
