I specifically tell them not to, using a Post-it not to lower tire pressure when it goes in, and it seems to work.

Changing cars has meant a change in fuel type, thus a change in fuel stations as well, and the ones I now (have to) go to have free air - which used to be 0.5 eur/5 minutes at the previous fuel stations.

You CAN win 'm all

You guys pay for filling your tires? Jesus. I just pump them up with a bicycle pump. Takes like 20 pumps to top off the pressure per tire but it's a nice workout, which I don't get often.

I used to never buy gas at a place that charged for air. Now that I only use E0 (in one car), I don't have much of a choice :/

My dealership people know not to screw with my settings, other than Ford and my seat position- which is pretty tough if you have a bit of a gut.

Change my own oil. My air compressor is one of those small pancake jobs, close to 15 years old and I built two houses with it.

No, I don't, and when it turns out that the sixteen year-old with an impact wrench that the previous owner had change the oil stripped the oil pan, I do that myself, too.

I will be fixing all of the stuff that I broke replacing the pan, too, and all of the stuff that breaks when I fix that stuff!
