Covid-19 spreads easily when using gas pumps, so
wear disposable gloves or any kind of paper towel
or even sheets of old newspaper when using the
pump handle and pushing buttons, and smaller pieces
of paper towels or newspaper can be wrapped
around your button finger. A small strip of
masking tape folded over the tip of your
index finger would probably work to break contact
with the buttons...although it sounds like a pain in
the butt, much better than a pain in your lungs!

Good idea! There are so many places that are touched by others’ fingers. Gas pumps are definitely one.

After I run my cards I always put on a pair of leather gloves. After I finish fueling I have wet towel hand wipes in the vehicle to clean my hands with. Been doing that for years.

I didn't have gloves last time I filled so I took out my disinfectant wipes and cleaned the whole handle part and then used hand sanitizer when I was done
