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

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...
