Subject: RE: Getting Gasoline in Europe

This is going to be my first road trip in Europe and I will be driving from Zurich to Northern Italy (dolomites).

I have a few questions concerning the filling stations in Europe:

1. Are they self-service mostly?

How is payment at self service? Feed money into slots??

2. Do they take credit cards?

3. Are they full service?

4. Is diesel the common fuel? 4. Are they situated on non-autobahn roads? or just in towns?

I know that this must seem trivial but as I have no experience with this in Europe I would appreciate someone who has done this to fill me in on what to expect.

Best regards,
