This subsection shall not apply to vehicles or vessels transporting motor fuel contained in their running tanks and used solely for their propulsion or to vehicles or vessels transporting motor fuel of not more than five gallons for emergency purposes.

(E) The state of destination as represented to the transporter by the person who arranged the transportation.

(2) Failure to produce such invoice, bill of sale, or other document when demanded or failure of a document produced upon demand to meet the requirements of this Code section shall be prima-facie evidence of a violation of this article.

(3) The transporter shall leave a copy of the invoice, bill of lading, or other documentation with each person who receives the fuel into bulk storage for resale.

(e) Delivery of motor fuel from a transport tank truck or vessel directly into the fuel tank of any motor vehicle in this state is prohibited except in cases of emergency.

The report shall specify what portion of the deliveries recorded for each account were within the terminal to others and what portion was removed from the terminal facility via the loading rack. The report shall identify the state or country of destination of the deliveries as reflected on the bills of lading issued by the terminal operator.
