We just returned from a two month tour of eastern Canada, and upper eastern US. We used yellow, black, and green pumps in our travels. As stated, the colour means nothing.

OK, after reading through this thread, is it safe to say that when pulling our travel trailer with our 06 Silverado diesel, it is ok to use the diesel fuel sold in tractor trailer stations - such as Loves or Pilate? Is the diesel fuel sold out front with the gas pumps the same as what's sold around back where the trucks fuel? Thanks much...

The diesel sold in the car lanes and the diesel sold in the truck lanes should be the same. The only exception is that there is also off-road (dye) sold in the truck lanes intended for use in the reefer systems, so be sure to select 'tractor fuel' and not 'reefer' or 'off-road'. It's the same fuel, just without the road taxes. Get caught with dyed fuel and you have a big fine.

Apparently there are two tiers of taxes on fuel sold in Arizona, so you'll need to be sure to pull alongside the correct pumps there.

People in Oregon and New Jersey don't appear to be as smart as the rest of us. (I read that somewhere). That's why they're not allowed to pump their own fuel.

When it’s pouring rain outside and cold, I’m feeling pretty smart sitting in my warm car while someone pumps my gas

It's been a long time since I bought gasoline in Oregon, but in New Jersey the use of vapor-recovery pumps is required. Topping off - after the pump autostops, defeats the vapor recovery. Pump jockeys are trained to NOT top off (there's a sticker on the pump about this, too). It's about pollution control more than the relative intelligence of the motorist.
