I never usually take off my helmet. I walk in the store and pay for my gas and walk out to refill. Stations never usually have a problem with it.

We use RON octane measurement, you use MON octane measurement.
As stated, our 98RON is our top-tier pump fuel so I guess it equates to your 93MON.
We don't like it.

We started out with this broken system and it's still broken!

I usually just keep my helmet on filling up or walking into the gas station. Its just easier. Now! If you own a gas station or quicke-mart, if you don't see a guy pull up on a motorcycle and he is wearing a motorcycle helmet, good chances are you about to get robbed.....sorry.......

But would they say the same to someone wearing a Burka?

Re: how to refuel without dropping on the tank!

Here, i've never saw any sign asking to take off your helmet before going in a gas station, but hey, it's just comon sense.... Would you go in a bank without taking of your scarf covering your face??

As for the pump payment.. I've never took my helmet off there!

In the US usually you don't have to remove your helmet if you pay at the pump but if you enter the store you usually see a sign on the door telling you that you have to remove it.

Then when you lift it out tilt it up as you withdraw to aviod any drips.


That's exactly what I was thinking.
