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

No, I usually walk around the station getting in the random cars to check them out. If someone objects I just pull down my zipper and ask them if they want me to check their oil.

Yep.

Sorry that self-service is too inconvenient for you.

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.

No, I go around to the other cars and ask the owners if they need their windows washed for a dollar. I like to stay busy and make money if I can.
