Rendering can change.. if there is enough need. For example some renders 
look for;
  the surface tag to render roads that are unpaved differently from 
those that are paved.
the tags for bicycle use to determine if paths, footways are available 
for bicycle use..

As I said

the key fuel= is in use to distinguish the type of fuel .. CNG, diesel, 
petrol, kero etc. Not for the dispensing method.


and possibly
dispenser= bottle, drum, pump (where pump is what Australians call a 
'bowser' .. and what is presently used to render amenity=fuel)

fuel:storage=bottle, drum,tank. Needs words to describe there things, 
particularly that the 'tank' is much larger than the drum.
