    I live in PA but was in NJ the other day at a gas station and was wondering how you guys pump gas if you have to fill up your truck, mowers, and gas tanks all at one stop? Do the attendants fill em all up, crawl over the trailers, etc, or is there an exception for people like us?

    you can do everything at once. if you ask they will let you fill it all up yourself unless u go to a jerk off..if not then u would probably have to get all of the tanks out and just fill up the tanks. ( i wouldnt let them pump gas straight into my mowers)

    I think NJ's no pumping gas law is ridiculous. My mom grew up in NJ and never knew how to pump gas. A couple of years ago she had to pump her own gas and was clueless, so a guy that was pumping gas had to help her out. I wonder what everybody else's experience is at NJ gas stations with their equipment.

    Nope. Even when I fill my vehicle ,If the attendants busy I'll start the pump and let him finish it off.
