Hatchback problem when getting gas

Does anyone else encounter this problem when getting gas with their hatchback?

I pull into the gas station by the pump with the fuel tank door facing the pump and the attendant can't find it. This has happened over 20 times!

Everytime I pull in to get gas I can never find anyone to fill my tank up for me, I have to get out of my car and fill it myself.

That has been illegal in the State of New Jersey since 1947.

I find that happens when ever I leave New Jersey. It is quite annoying.
