There's no need for the devil here.  There are many tagging solutions,
including simply placing two
gas station nodes near each other, one for each style of pump.

But the nice thing about aeroway=fuel is that it works so cleanly to
represent this edge case:

         name=Bob's Airport, Seaplane, Boat and Motorhome Gas Depot

No confusing "motorhomes=no", "boats=yes" subtags on amenity=fuel.  No
confused GPS users
searching for fuel, and ending up driving across the runway.  No stupid gas
icons showing up in the middle
of the airport on a car oriented map.

Here's a JOSM patch for to implement just that preset:

+        <item name="Aviation Fuel" icon="presets/fuel.png"
type="node,closedway" preset_name_label="true">
+            <link href="http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:aeroway=fuel
+            <space />
+            <key key="aeroway" value="fuel" />
+            <optional>
+                <combo key="brand" text="Brand"
values_searchable="true" />
+                <label text="Fuel types:" />
+                <checkgroup columns="2">
+                    <check key="fuel:91UL"    text="91UL (clear)" />
+                    <check key="fuel:96UL"    text="96UL (clear)" />
+                    <check key="fuel:100LL"   text="100LL (blue)" />
+                    <check key="fuel:diesel"  text="Diesel" />
+                    <check key="fuel:autogas" text="Ethanol-Free Unleaded"
+                </checkgroup>
+            </optional>
