Clutchrider, I like your idea, but fear it will never happen. We actually do have a BJ's membership, and when I checked out the one in Manchester, I did notice that the gas was much cheaper. Thank you for letting me know there is no difference between credit and cash there. Guess that where we will plan on getting the bulk of our gas. As it is now, DE has cheaper gas than PA, so we just plan it so we can fill up when we are out shopping down there.

We are also very spoiled shopping in DE, where there is no sales tax at all, not on anything. Yup, the state of tax free shopping. When we move from NY state down here, I initially kept feeling like I was waiting for the punch line when I purchased something. You know, you have to wait to get your money out until you see how much tax will be added on. Not in DE, a $2.99 item is $2.99. Needless to say we deal with a lot of pennies down here . Oh well we enjoyed it while it lasted, guess it's back to reality once we move back north.

There's a gas station on RT 75 in Windsor Locks (by the airport) that accepts cash at the pump. I don't remember the name of it, but it's on the same side of street as Wendy's. I don't know if the machine spits out change, but if I had to guess I would say no.
