maybe go buy some fuel additive for improved octane and call it a day? not sure what to help with here sorry
Guess you really haven't been all over the country after all. New Jersey and Oregon both do not allow self service. And yes, it does create jobs, technically speaking, but they are jobs that the economy would not normally support, except when artificially created by Government regulation, and those "jobs" actually cost everyone in those states in higher gas prices. No telling how many jobs are lost due to lost economic activity due to pointless make-work, non-productive jobs like pumping gas.
