You didn't have time to refuel but you had time to stand outside for 10 minutes to scare customers away? ???

It was either that or giving a dozen of doctors a year work....

It is officially. but you dont have any assets, you dont have much to worry about. just dont do anything stupid

actually the rental company has to cover up to state minimum (in NY state it can be like $10-20, most states it's like 1/4 of that) and you're still on the hook for anything above that. Liability they sell you is Suplemental (from state min. to 1 million or something)

otherwise you're correct; if you do anything stupid they can come after your assets for the remainder of the damage

(with no assets, can they send it to collections (credit damage)/charge future earnings?)

If you dont have any assets, chances are that they wont even go after you...

No credit card covers liability.
im referring to the premium car rental insurance that you buy, not whats covered from the card

CDW from a credit card covers that.

There's generally a state minimum for liability that the rental company has to cover. Don't go smashing any BMW's or Lexus' and you should be fine. (In other words, when you play bumper cars, stick to Ford and Hyundai...)
