Argh, let's not invent yet another amenity type for this.  Why not tag for
the dispenser type?  Then you'd still be able to find fuel as an amenity
(which is better than nothing if you don't get your preferred dispenser
type in most cases) but you could, say, filter for only fuel amenities that
have, say, a fuel pump.  Might also consider tagging for type of fuel pump
since it seems my generation struggles with pumps older than roughly the
middle 1990s, and would be completely lost at a gravity feed pump with a
glass globe if they've never before traveled parts of western Canada where
these are still in common use (it seems PetroCanada is spendthrift to a
fault at times)...
