Since gas has a better chance at exploding than diesel does, I fill up with it on. That's my reason. And then just think of all the millions of hours and (i'm sure) billions of gallons of diesel spent while refueling and you never hear of those exploding.

Diesel isn't even close to being as flammable as gas. I have no trouble keeping it running. I usually do anyways since my guage tends to need to "reset" or it won't read right till I restart.

Not that I can think of. Since gas engines shouldn't be left on, it would probably be best to stay away from the gas pumps. But then again maybe not since we don't use sparks to ignite, just compression.
So probably no down side. The gauge just takes forever to come up.

that is not a good idea. Fires have been related to filling a running engine when its unleaded fuel but diesel isn't flammable enough to ignite this way.
a friend of mine caught himself on fire filling a hot lawnmower..it wasn't running, just really hot.
