Oregon is one of only two states in the USA where you are not allowed to pump your own gas. I prefer it that way, because then there are more jobs for people to have. Plus you never (usually) have to leave your car. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Would you rather pump your own gas, or have a service person do it for you?

I think its New Jersey.

I prefer to pump my own gas. I like the power and being able to do it on my own. I went to a place that pumped it for you once and they got gas all over the side of my car.

Yeah, New Jersey. I realized I should have mentioned that after it was already submitted.

Once I have a car, just an issue of trusting a stranger, I would rather do it myself..

I've always had it done for me.

I'd rather do it myself though.

10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 6/26/07 - 6:17:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I do it myself. The Full service is too expensive.

I'd rather have someone else do it, I hate getting gasoline on my clothes and then stinking like it for the rest of the day

Here in every gas station the people who work there pump the gus for me you.

I'd rather do it myself.

There used to be more full serve stations here. Now its mostly self serve. I'd rather do small things like that for myself.

if yur lazy like me u choose someone else but i still have 2 do it myself

I miss when the service person would pump the gas and wash your windscreens all without a second thought.
I can never get the stupid catch to work on the pump and just end up standing there holding it for ages. If someone did it for me it would be easier.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 7:20:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I always do it myself, isn't exactly difficult!
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 12:51:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
yea, here in New Jersey it's all full-serve.

The only thing that's kind of annoying is that most attendants top it off without asking. Also, it can be a long wait if the station is crowded.

Other than that, I love it...and gas is usually so much cheaper here than most anywhere else, which is weird. I'd think that it would cost more if someone else has to pump it for you.

10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 3:46:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd do it, I would feel stupid sitting there in my car whilst someone did it.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 4:53:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
If it cost the same, I'd rather have someone else do it while I listened to tunes.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 5:10:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather do it myself. I'd feel stupid just sitting there while someone else filled up the tank.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 6:03:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
service person..I'm too lazy
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 6:05:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
my mom once had to pay an extra 20$ in gas because the guy filling up the car accidentally went over her request
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/28/07 - 6:06:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I prefer to have it pumped for me... I hate leaving my car unattended
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 6/29/07 - 5:30:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I live in NYS and will go out of my way to find full-service. I lived in Jersey for a while and I loved that about living there. Buying alcohol and not making left turns was annoying though....
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 6/29/07 - 8:06:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Holy cow.
No self serves is one of the many reasons i HATE oregon - that land of clear cutting and rude people.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 6/30/07 - 5:20:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather pump it myself.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 6/30/07 - 10:12:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Its easier for me to do it myself
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/2/07 - 12:25:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd much rather do it myself so I don't have to worry about the service person sabatoging my car.
