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

New Jersey and Oregon have limited full service in that they pump gas for you. I don't like it because it adds costs and because they tend to overfill the tank and spill gas on the side of your car unless you warn them everytime. They also slam your fuel door.

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

Self serve. Check oil twice per month in morning when engine is cold.
