And if you use self-serve, how often do you check your oil?

Self, it's a good thing too because I don't think there is any full serve station in this area.

Back home, the local supermarket has four Phillips 66 pumps. If you don't want to pump your own gas, they will send out a bag boy to do the deed.

I use self serve, except when fueling in NJ. I check my oil once or twice per month at home before starting up.

almost always self-service, but is it still against the law in New Jersey? don't check oil often enough, depend on idiot light too much, although never really have gotten burned...
