A tanker truck doesn't have to pull up to the gas pumps. Unfortunately, we can't fuel up where the tanker truck stops to unload.

He sill has to get in and out the same as you do regardless of where along the path he ultimately stops.

This last trip had all kinds of scenarios. "X" stations are the worst. I actually got myself trapped in one. Luckily the guy to the right of me finished just after I did and pulled his car away from the pump and parked it so I could get out.

I'm liking Pilot stations with their RV pumps!

They generally have a straight in, offload, straight out for the tankers. The tankers don't have to try to maneuver by the pumps and make a hard turn to avoid hitting the building. But, you are right, they DO have to pull in and pull out.

The tanker driver has specific instructions of exactly how to enter, park, drop fuel and leave. These are all planned just as the OP would like to do.
