    After reading some of the responses I'm reminded of why I almost always use cash to buy gas. AND I save a few cents per gallon.

    I think the readers on gas pumps are often dirty and worn due to heavy and often careless use. Most people are in a hurry and they seem to use less care than with an in-store reader.

    It is possible to do a DRO without a Linear scale, but accuracy over distance will only be as good as your lead screw, same as reading a hand wheel dial. Small hobbyist type machines already do this...

    I don't think it's really that off topic. Not only the USA but also other countries are divided, not only over Covid but also basic economic and governance issues.
