It would bother me, that I can't pump myself. If anyone would like not to handle with gas pump, then leave that job to attendants, but if I want to do myself, then I want to do it myself. In my country attendants were abandoned long ago and there aren't any serious accidents regarding filling up the car tank.

Most Out of state people love it , lines form at the Turnpike Gas Stations form Out of State people not wanting to fill up the tank themselves , some rural stations allow you to fill up yourself. you would love it , if you lived here. Alot of Euros said they love it and wish they had it in there countries along with some other things

you sure that's the reason for the lines? the lowest gas prices in the country may be a factor.

No, I wouldn't want it. Italy has it (you can choose with service or without service - there it is about 5 cent per litre difference) and I always fill the tank myself. It is faster and cheaper. Why would I pay for a ridiculously simple and nothing-to-do service if I could do that easy job myself for free?

They are supposed to, as it's assumed the cars will be driven on the motorway.

Yep. I'm sure it'll be included, especially if you rent from one of the major chains.

Interestingly, even in Munich did the rental car have Swiss and Austrian toll stickers.
