    What's bs?
    That I only took 6 minutes to fuel?
    Not everyone puts 300 gallons in when they fuel you know.
    When running local and a rule of ending the shift with full tanks means the fuel stop is quick. And since it's the end of the day, I want to get home and not mess around.

    I'll fuel my #### in 8 to 10 minutes and roll forward while still on duty to finish my 15 ahead of the pump, instead of screwing the guy behind me, like he will do to the guy behind him.

    Whatever the OP wrote isn't on google but it looks like he copy and pasted it somewhere. It looks like an elaborate troll. I don't understand why a long time user would troll us though.

    I dont fuel my tractor, its fueled in yard by yard personnel, I do pre and post trip it. When I worked for IWX out of Kingman I did not fuel there either, they have a fuel attendant that fuels tractor & trailer on your way into the yard. SO I don't see how DOT can mandate me logging something I do not do.

    Half the time i'm in a day cab with one tank. Takes maybe 5 minutes to fuel. Move the truck forward and change log to "Off Duty". Have never had DOT say a thing either. Even in the 2 tank trucks, the only time it takes more than 7or 8 minutes is when I'm placarded and have to fuel one tank at a time with my hand on the nozzle.

    If it takes me longer than 10 mins to go from empty tanks to full and clean glass I either have a broke leg, the pumps slow, or I couldn’t find a squeegee.
    15 minutes is usually how long it takes me to wait on the guy in front of me to pull up, me fuel and clean then pull forward run in piss and leave.
