“Seeing the fuel gauge barely move when you put in £20 is frustrating and only going to get worse." Er, David, you don\’t actually put a £20 note in the tank, you give that to the attendant when you\’ve finished putting petrol in.

  1. “Er, David, you don’t actually put a £20 note in the tank, you give that to the attendant when you’ve finished putting petrol in.”

    Er, where is this petrol station that has an attendant to fill your tank for you?

  2. What did you do with the free set of tumblers? (we’re still talking about petrol stations from the 1970s, right?)

    Tim adds: Well, I have to admit, the station down at the end of my road gets most pissed off if you try to pump it by yourself. A long way to come for a fill up, of course.

  3. In the Rosneft stations on Sakhalin, you pay in advance without exception, and there is an army of attendents employed to pump your petrol for you. 90% of the time, you end up doing it yourself.

    Oh, and between 9:00am and 9:15am and 4:00pm and 4:15pm the entire station is on a break. If you want fuel, tough shit: wait.

    Tasmania. Oh, and a small place near Bega in New South Wales. I assume that’s what he was referring to.

  5. St Antonin Noble Val in the Tarn et Garonne. And the attendant speaks a few words of English which is more than can be said for most service stations in the London area.
