    The gas pump does not care if you are filling up a car, Motor Cycle, Jet Ski........ and so one. It will turn off when the fuel back flows into the nozzle. BUT when filling up a ski more times than not it is too late. If you are concerned take a towel with you and put it below the filler. If you get gas on the towel just lay it across the bunk while you are skiing and it will dry. In most cases I just watch the fuel level in the tank (by looking at it directly) and take my time.

    Good luck and enjoy the lake.

    Another easy thing to do is keep a gallon of water with you when you fill up and just pour some water on the area that has had gas spilled on it.
