Can you fill gas can at gas station?

Yes, you can. But, not on cars with carpeted floors/trunks or on a truck bed. The dispenser nozzle can cause a spark and ignite the gas.

Where does RaceTrac get their gasoline from?

Crude oil is normally mixed in refineries and pipelines before being sold. This makes it difficult to determine from where it comes from. Most gas stations do not know exactly where their gas comes from.
