I have a couple of short trips coming up in my van, and I kind of wish there was a full service where they could check your air pressure or your oil all your fluids etc. I realize I am probably in the exception that I do not do that myself on this site.

Would you ever go to a full-service gas station?

Go to New Jersey. They are all full service only. No self serve in the entire state.

No, I would not trust them to do anything right as this is no longer a common job.

In oregon at my town the gas station had to quit pumping diesel itís now self serve because too many idiots put gas in. The kids canít compute when I pull up and tell them to fill my car with diesel.

So no.

Hell no. They would hire kids that would be on their phones and be barely able to open the hoods. I don’t trust anybody anyway.

I would allow the kid to do it and thank him and possibly even tip.

Working as a full service attendant was my first job as soon as I turned 13 and was a great learning experience as well as stepping stone into work and "the real world".

You are allowed to pump your own diesel though, Iím guessing itís so the attendant isnít liable for when they put the wrong fuel in

I do it myself even at full service pumps for a couple different reasons. My SUV takes premium and my truck takes diesel and I don't trust them to get it right. I unknowingly paid for a full tank of gasoline years ago while traveling with a camper trailer. Didn't get very far before the truck died and I was on the side of the highway.

I also prefer to pay at the pump with my credit card. Since I'm already standing there I may as well just pump it myself.
