  1. Hi Robert,

    The last time I received service like this was when I was in Mexico. You can still get this kind of service in the US if you pay an additional 7 to 10 cents per gallon more. I used to do that in the US when I was rich.

  2. They stopped pumping gas when the nation got lawsuit crazy and minimum wage went to a $1.00. Now it’s $150 bucks to get your oil changed ;-( and shop rates are $115.00 an hour – mechanics – those are the guys that took shop in high school because they couldn’t cut it for college – now the college guys are working at Burger King. Go figure.

  3. It isn’t laziness that ended the great service we used to get at American gas stations. It is much cheaper for the the station owners to let customer’s do it themselves. Modern pumps that take cards make it simple.
    I had a Mexican gas pumper ask me how big the tips are for pumping gas in the States. I had to laugh. What you need to watch for in Mexico is possible cheating by attendants. Make sure they actually put all the gas in the tank. I’ve had them pump very slowly to make me think they had filled the tank. Watch them pump and make sure you get the correct change when you pay.

    • That’s good advice John… best to be cautious, also look at the pump meter and make sure they start at Zero…if someones standing in front of the pump blocking the view, insist that they move.
