    Yes I use to but I don't go solo to get fuel now that I have had kids, but at the moment I don't have a car so it's a non issue, whenido have my car no I won't I will leave it unlocked and I will be leaving my kids in the car while I go to pay. I'd rather chance someone stealing my car vs a fuel station fire and my car being locked.

    *sits back and waits for the "do you leave your kids in the car when you go to pay for fuel" topic to be raised*

    Not yesterday. The air con is broken and it was really hot so I left the windows down to prevent returning to an oven. No point in locking the doors if the windows are down!


    I would lock it if I didn't have this no air con issue.

    Yep - when I fill up and when I pay. My uncle had a bottle of wine stolen whilst he was filling up - random!

    Not normally, but if there is something of value in the car (like a laptop) then yes.

    Yep. All I have to do is press a button so it's not an inconvenience.

    Yup when I filled up pre-DS I would lock the car when I went in to pay. Now I have DS I only fill up when I have another person in the car so I don't have to leave the baby unattended so don't have to worry about locking

    Yep, definitely. It's the thought of anyone climbing into the car that is more disturbing than something being stolen.

    But I do tend to leave my handbag on the front seat, and just take the fuel card inside (I have a work leased car), so definitely lock it.
