Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

How do I capture a section of road that are for specified vehicles only? For example, at many petrol stations there is a section of road for tankers only. Similarly, at large railway stations, airports and shopping centres, there are sections of road that are for taxis only. (I know of one of them being a taxi overflow, so shouldn't be qualified as a taxi rank). In both cases I have already captured them as service roads, with general access=no and one-way=yes

You can deny the revlevant access, as you already have (access=no prohibits access by foot too and maybe not what you actually wanted to express) and then allow the appropriate method of transport. While OSM doesn't have a very finegrained system in general it should be good enough, see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:access#Transport_mode_restrictions

Note that vehicle classifications differ a lot between jurisdictions, so this will always tend to not capture every nuance of local laws.
