After driving around I found a "manned" station. I was disappointed because the attendant told me I still needed a credit card with a chip, or an AMEX card without a chip would work. I did have a USAA AMEX card, and much to my surprise, it worked.

Not sure if the same would apply in Italy or other countries.
