Remember free air to blow up your tyres?
it used to be part of the service at petrol stations. today it cost me 50p (ten bob!!!) and I had to be as quick as a grand prix pit mechanic to blow up all 4 tyres before time ran out.
I was in need of air at the end.

Remove all dust caps before starting.
Many waste time and money by not doing.

And you got a free squirt Redex when you filled up too, oh and free oil if you had a two stroke engine.

Tip:- Don't take the nail out of a tyre until pay day

My Dad would fill up customers with petrol, check their oil and water, and always with a smile. And yes, no charge for putting air in tyres.

Filling customers up with petrol is frowned upon these days.
