khub mitunam 'in jur 'AdamhA ro har vaqt ke mibinam beshnAsam.
Explanation:
Another possible translation:
khub mitunam 'in jur 'AdamhA ro har bAr ke mibinam tash-khis bedam.

1- As the style of the above English passage is informal, we need to translate it into a Persian colloquial expression. Note that, for example, "gas jockey" and "guys" are slang/informal words.

2- "just" is an emphatic word meaning 'precisely, exactly'., and "spot" means 'detect or discern, especially visually'. "Those guys" refers to certain 'kind' of people; the 'gas jockey' is a member of those 'kind' of people; hence, in Persian it is better to add "jur" ('kind', 'type') to "'in 'AdamhA".

3. In Persian, there should be some explicitation concerning "every time". We can add "ke mibinam" ('when I see them') to "har vaqt" ('every time') to make the expression natural.

Good luck!
