I'm in NJ and do gas stations all the time. I have asked for $2 of gas several times. The attendant might look at me in a strange way, but when I have too much gas in my car and more stations to do, I swallow my pride and ask. I detest when they make me get $10 for using a card.

To do these fuel shops, a particular MSC wants a camera able to time/date stamp on the photo.
My Cannon cannot do this, what do shoppers in this case use for pictures?
thanks for any guidance.
Oh yes, I've said, "Fill it," and only got about $2.30 worth. Ha ha. Usually I do that on my last one for the day. The ones without a store can be a bit tricky, but I don't buy anything if they only have auto products and report it as such. I've never been questioned by any of the companies, thus far. There is one MSC that wants you to buy something if they only have automobile products and they increase the reimbursement to about $3, I think. I don't do them too often. As for the Maritz yellow shops with the kiosk, I take a photo of the inside counter and the kiosk counter, always. They have come back to me about those being required. You also have to evaluate both the gas attendant and the store cashier with full serve stations. I take two photos, one of each of them. After doing them for many years, I've come to determine that the ones with photos of each pump are the easiest for me and the ones I prefer. The yellows are a PITA to me. The Stericycle ones are also a piece of cake, but I only do them when the fees go up and I can make a route. The Market Force mystery shops are also easy peasy, as long as there is no store, which most here don't have.
