      I'm guessing you might be talking about the automatic shutoff before your tank is full. I'm guessing early shutoff because I only learned what causes it, or how to combat it at my favorite station a few months ago. Dirty connection. Wipe the filler spout off first with a paper towel. I haven't wiped the filler hose rubber, but that is next when this fails.

      Edit: clarified wording "I haven't wiped the filler hose rubber, but that is next when this fails."

      I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

        Another reason is a poor seal. Push the pump in fully so the accordion collar is fully contracted. If it is in it's normal expanded position it won't make a seal.

                    Well depending on the station or store they would probably help you do that. If two people or more are working they should pump it for you. You may have to call inside and you may have to wait but its doable and The ADA mandates that pumps are accessible and while it does mandate someone pump the gas for you... well here is what is says

                    People with disabilities may find it difficult or impossible to use the controls, hose, or nozzle of a self-serve gas pump. As a result, at stations that offer both self and full service, people with disabilities might have no choice but to purchase the more expensive gas from a full-serve pump. At locations with only self-serve pumps, they might be unable to purchase gas at all.
                    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires self-serve gas stations to provide equal access to their customers with disabilities. If necessary to provide access, gas stations must -
                    • Provide refueling assistance upon the request of an individual with a disability. A service station or convenience store is not required to provide such service at any time that it is operating on a remote control basis with a single employee, but is encouraged to do so, if feasible.
                    • Let patrons know (e.g., through appropriate signs) that customers with disabilities can obtain refueling assistance by either honking or otherwise signaling an employee.
                    • Provide the refueling assistance without any charge beyond the self-serve price.


                    If you have additional questions concerning the ADA, you may call the Department of Justice's ADA Information Line at (800) 514-0301 (voice) or (800) 514-0383 (TDD)

                      Here in Minnesota we just need to honk and they will send someone out. You can also ask any person going in to the station to let them known you are in a wheelchair and will send someone out. Stores all offer carry out services also.

                        I found a local gas station that repairs cars in addition to selling gas. I try and go there for my car maintenance and gas (most of the time), they get to know me, and if I pull up to the pump in front, they send someone out. I have seen them do this for little old ladies also. You need to find a station that is more 'family owned' vs one that is turning over clerks all the time.

                        Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

                              Why do you care that they stare? I am AB and female, and when I ride with a friend shotgun, I often pump gas for them, male or female. Screw them.
