Yes, too easy for someone to remove the nozzle from your tank and put it in theirs at your expense.

Yes. Where else do I have to go and leave my car there for 2 whole minutes?

datsundriver, you need to pull out of the 60s. Do you actually find that kind of service around Houston any longer? As for people smoking, walk over to them, pull that thing out, put it out on their forehead and tell them they can't do that. Oh, and cell phones won't cause a fire unless it causes you to not pay attention and drop your lit cigarette butt onto the gas nozzle.

When forced to use self-service:
Ever since most of the service stations were converted to convenience stores selling a mixture of corn oil and whatever else the government has decided to force people to put into their cars and lawnmowers to make them less efficient and cause them to malfunction more often.
.
However, it is dangerous, with all the people smoking and using cell phones and some even letting their engines run while refuelling.
Would much prefer to watch from across the street so I could safely call 911 after one of the above mentioned jerks blows up the station.
.
.
.
When using full-service:
Let the attendant do his/her job, fill my tank, and check my oil and tires.
Watch from inside the climate-controlled station, while sipping a cup of coffee, or other appropriate beverage, offered by the SERVICE STATION Operator, who actually does appreciate my business.

I always stay with the vehicle and I always pay at the pump and get my receipt there. I have problems walking so I never go into the store. And why should I go in and pay higher prices for something I already have at home.

Yes, always, just in case. If I need to empty my tank, I have at least one of my passengers stay with the vehicle.
