I assume they charge for things like oil? A litre of oil is close to the
price of a quarter of a tank of fuel, they surely don't give that away

As for trusting them to put the right oil in.....

When I started driving there were still a lot of attendant filling
stations around, I tended to avoid them as I had a car with a small tank
and they never filled it to the level I did for a long journey.
