This is getting horribly complex; Also I note that the discussion in the
wiki was 8+ months ago & seems to have just died.
I suggest we have already amenity=fuel.
Would not fuel=list,of,arbitrary,types not fill the need for detail? If
we could agree on some standard ones like petrol,diesel,LPG then this
would stay largely in-date, with new major types (bio, hydrogen) getting
added when it's happening.
Octane lists & prices seem a bit over-the-top to me, & perhaps
should stay in their own tag for specialist renderers to use?
fuel_grade=petrol 97,petrol 99,diesel b20,deuterium d80 should be
adequate to cover future expansion :)
I can't see a need for a gazillion tag types here; that would just mean
a lot of taggers would get it wrong, look at that list last month!
