I've heard it said that filling up at a station that's getting,or has just gotten,a fuel delivery is a bad idea.The theory I've seen says that during delivery and for a while after sediment and/or water at the bottom of the tank being filled is disturbed and will wind up in *your* tank.That seems to be a reasonable fear to have...although I have no practical,scientific knowledge to back up my inclination to accept this theory.
