Assunto:  Word for gas station where you get serviced...
 
Mensagem: 

"Full service" is fine.  The term is commonly used and understood by all.  Fewer and fewer stations are full service today.

 

I was surprised to learn that in Oregon it's ILLEGAL for a motorist to put gasoline into his tank.  He must let an attendant do it.

 

By the way, in slang we call an attendant "a gas jockey" and a mechanic is "a grease monkey".
