Frown Gas stations that let you overdraft debit cards

I'm in a bit of a fiscal bind right now and I need to fill up my tank. In the past, I have been able to overdraft my debit card at gas stations by identifying it as a credit card when the pump prompted me. Recently, I tried it at a Chevron and it didn't seem to work, although the pumps were newer. Are there any gas stations that are unanimously susceptible to customers overdrawing their cards? Someone has probably been in this sad situation.

I'd look into getting overdrafting on your bank account before you try to fleece a gas station. It isn't very expensive, usually only a few dollars plus interest on the money you go under, and will save you crazy NSF and overdraft fees. You could also look into a personal line of credit., They offer money to borrow at (usually) very low interest. Mine charges me 4% annually, so if you only need the money between paychecks, you won't end up paying much at all. (0.011% daily, or 11 cents per hundred bucks per day)

Every station I've been to allows me to use it as credit if funds are low in checking...

iv managed to do this several times. Some stations it works others it does not.
Cash back is another good thing some shops like walmart have a deal with the bank which guarantees the transaction.

There was a documentary on tv once where a student opened several bank accounts and every day he would go in to a shop buy two packets of smokes and get $100 cash back in the end he took the banks for 60k and he went bankrupt because he could not pay it back
no one knows what happened to that 60k but i bet he has some of it stashed somewhere.

There was a similar case where the guy had to pay it back $2 a month
