for some of us including me...our boat doesnt consume a lot of fuel relatively speaking (comparing our fastech to a twin 1075 cigarette), so the $20 is appreciated as it usually costs us around $100 to top off from around 3/4 tank. for some members i can see its a joke as it probably costs some around 1k to fill. for others it doesnt.If someone who "doesn't get it" wants to offer me 20 bucks for gas, I just smile and politely refuse.
If a friend descides that they are giving the gas boy their VISA card before I can give him mine, I will say thank you very much but you don't have to do that. Its then their descision whether they continue to do so.
