    YES unless you pay your own cash. That is what we did in our time off bobtail. Carried enough in the wallet to fill the thing any time it needs it. I don't try to get that money back because it will breach the PC time off.

    if you swipe a card at the pump. dont log duty until u hang it up. it wont show a transaction on the computer until the handle is hung up

    i use to find the longest line at the fuel island. get in it and hit off duty. start my 30 minute lunch. by the time i started pumping fuel. i had about 5 minutes until 30 was over. once i hanged handle up. i hit on duty fueling. pulled truck up and got my fuel receipt and rode on. never held anyone up and never once broke the law. like in the paper log days. i would show atlanta on log. didnt matter if i didnt show 3 hours in traffic. there was never a change in city. its atlanta on both ends

    not all time. only the time after the pump is shut off. your log and time on the comdata report will match 100

    How much fuel? Just to replaced the fuel you used while on PC? why log it?

    Putting in more fuel than what you used, and would be used for "buisness". that could be a problem.
     
    tscottme Thanks this.

    I fuel on PC all the time. But I’m also Ag exempt when I’m doing it.

    Why pay fuel tax for idling on private property?

    If you bobtail and own the truck and pay for fuel it seems like personal.
