The places I have in mind are not the same as standard fueling places, tagged amenity=fuel, in fact, I wish them to be tagged differently so the two types are not confused. They're much smaller and offer no other services or amenities whatsoever.


Yep - non-standard places to buy gas, possibly not gas for a car. basically not a “Gas station”.  

For some fuel types, it isn’t even for cars…

I want to tag permanent kerosene dispensaries  (for heaters), but I don’t want them confused with gas stations - though they use similar equipment. 

Some people want to tag informal/ad hoc/ low volume gasoline dispensaries that do not offer the expected volumes of gasoline you would expect at a “gas station” - nor the amenities that a standard gas station would offer. 

jsut as we differentiate between fast food and restaurant that serves burgers, there should be a difference between a non-standard fuel shop and a gas station, though both might have gasoline, in some form, for cars

it has to be really small - like 10-20 K.
