& that's the definition I'd use (& agree that it's a *lllooonnnggg* time
since I saw anybody automatically do your windscreen, tyres & check under
the bonnet! :-()

However, being awkward as always :-), we have one servo just near us that
the 3 pumps at this end are self-service, but the 3 pumps at the other end
of the forecourt have a bloke there who will do the fuel for you, or you
can self-serve. But he's only there during normal business hours (8 - 5).

How would you tag that - full_service:limited?
