Is there a tag or description for the special pavement at fuel service stations ? It consists out of paving_stones (hexagon) but they are liquid proof connected. Its practical a special kind of surface, it prevents the leaking fuel to flow away into the undergroud.

There is no widely-used tag to describe this; I would simply tag them as surface=paving_stones. I would also argue that this level of detail is probably not necessary for OSM, as the users of the petrol station care whether the surface is paved or not; whether it's impermeable to liquids isn't really relevant for them.

Lightsider, thanks for your attribution, I hesitate to vote it down. "users of the petrol station care whether the surface is paved or not; whether it's impermeable to liquids isn't really relevant for them" In this line there a lot of items not relevant but practical visible out there and items as fences, mail boxes en waste disposals should not be tagged, since people don’t care if they are there. If that’s your opinion, too bad stop mapping :-(( People don’t care !
