Full Service Pumps



Have you noticed that every summer the price at the pumps skyrockets?
This weekend the lineups began.



Finding a good full service pump is well worth the search and completely under rated. 


On Saturday the grand opening of the gasoline station on the farm opened up about the same time that chores were finished for the day.

I settled in to document...
the inaugural event .


Window service with a particularly difficult customer....
caused some words to be exchanged.

There was a disagreement about what colour fuel was being sold.


Eventually...
the bike car was filled UP.

The cost was surprisingly fairly accurate.

The initial estimate was $90 but when the service was all said and done...
it came in at $100.



The full service included ...
air in the tires...


...and a seat adjustment.



She worked day and night for about an hour...
refilling the vehicles at an amazing pace. 



There was some discussion with her business partner about taking a lunch break...
and the lineup was given notice that the station was closed.


I have a feeling her gasoline station will be open often this summer.
This is one line up that is worth the wait.



I love summertime.

all for now..
