I've always gotten off the bike out of habit, what do you guys do?

I've also heard some gas stations frown upon seated filling but you can also squeeze in a little more gas with the bike upright.

On except MAYBE on long rides I'll get off and stretch. Never an issue with stations here - all are self-serve with uncaring clerks too busy selling milk and lottery tickets to ever notice what is going on at the pumps.

Always get off the bike. Ever have an auto shut-off malfunction? It isn't pretty, happened to me twice now. Gas all over everything, looked like an expensive geyser. Had I been sitting on it, that gas would have been all over me. No thanks. Had the bike gone up in flames, again, no thanks.

Crazy, I've never heard of the auto-shutoff's doing that before. Are you filling up at some questionable gas stations?
