    I always take Dd out. Not sure what will happen once this one comes along... Might get hubby to fill up for me.

    Find me a statute!
    The law (criminal code I assume) appears to be silent on the subject of kids and paying for petrol.

    Hell no! What a friggin nightmare that would be!

    I think I took DD1 out of the car the first couple of times I paid for fuel then realised that I was taking a bigger risk driving TO the petrol station than leaving her in the car while I paid and decided from then i'd live on the edge and leave her in the car!

    I take the terrors with me when I have to. I usually try to go when I have another adult on the car, after work or at night once they are in bed and hubby is at home.

    I have a few options (that I know don't work for everyone):

    * Put fuel in before I pick up DS from my MIL's (I work PT) BUT I will be going on maternity leave, so that won't work anymore.
    * Get DH to put fuel in for me (I some mums are single and don't have this option)
    * Fill up at those servos where you pay at the pump (usually credit card). I know that not everybody has this option.
