Pumping fuel - Oregon & Washington

I just read that I cannot pump my own fuel in the above two states.

The law says gas dispensing - so I should be able to pump my own diesel can't I as it is not flammable.

Seems some stations will let you and some won't....

I don't understand this - either I can or I can't - anyone have experience with either of these two states? Are these the only two that have such a policy? I never heard of this before.

Oregon is mini serve so they pump. Washington you pump your own.

Cost is the same....in Oregon you pay for the help and in Washington you pay the governor.

Same thing in New Jersey. All stations are full service at all pumps. Some stations let you pump diesel but that is up to their interpretation of the law. It actually creates a lot of jobs and prevents a lot of spills. Just make sure they pump diesel if that is what you need.

When we went to Oregon & Washington, the first gas station we fueled at put a "Diesel" tag on the inside of our fuel door. That helped with the possible confusion at the pump.

As stated earlier, they do have to pump it and run your credit card (if you use one). Took some getting used to but it worked out OK.

You Kids! There was a time in this country ( don't know about Canada) when they pumped your gas, checked your tire pressure, your motor oil and washed your windows. Then they ran your credit card, gave you green stamps or blue chip stamps, a coffee mug with your favorite team logo on it(in lead based paint) and said "Thank you and come again"! Ahh, the good old days!

I'm with Ruffus & Hankpage. I remember the days of .25 cent gas. Gas stations where your car would be swarmed with 3 (yes 3) guys, who would clean all your windows, check all your fluid levels, check your tire pressure, fill your tank, take your money, and say "thank you for your business."

Ahh, the good old days! Now we accept as normal that we pump our own gas and are suspicious of a station that wants to do it for us. My how things have changed (and not for the better!)

At least I remember those days and can share the memories with my Son. Like the "Doughnut Man", "Ice Cream Man", "Drive-In's", etc. We sure had it good and we didn't even know it!

There was a time when the oil that was needed for your engine was stored in Glass bottles and was just a straight weight. Also if I remember correctly this was .25 or .30 a quart. Back then the rings would only last 20,000 to 30,000 miles and you would use to say fill up the oil and check the gas.
The Good Old Day's.

As far as diesel truck stops go, who fills up the diesel rig's? When pulling my fiver, I am usually at a Love's Or Travel Center of America filling up with the long haul trucks. More room for my 5TH wheel and truck.
