yeah, I too have learned that they dont like you moving your car.
I would go pay for fuel, move my car and then go back for anything else ...

Hmm I actually have had a staff member tell me to move my car before paying, and that the next person can start in the meantime.
This was when I... wait for it.... left my kids in the car to pay for petrol. She said she'd rather I drove up infront of the window.
Op I would think it's rude to make others wait.

Technically you should leave your car there until you have paid, but in this situation I would see if the attendant is paying attention and if they were I would move forward, as long as you pay attention to what pump you were on so that you can inform the staff then there's no real problem.
Most service stations have the ability to have 2 separate fuel transactions on the one pump (e.g- person pumps $20 hangs up n moves forward, next person pumps $10. There is then two separate amounts on their screen rather than one $30 amount)

Id move for sure. Dont really care what the servo attendant says. If i know im going to be taking my sweet time inside im not going to block two pumps from use.

I would have left it there. Especially if they could go to a different pump. This is a pet hate of mine, people only ever driving up to a pump on the side their tank is. Considering you can drive with the pump on any side of your car, I wouldn't have moved if they had the option to go to another one.

I'd go in and pay, then move my car and go back for coffee. I used to move my car before paying until I got told off. Now I don't risk it and do the pay, park, coffee routine.

Well, I didn't realise you could get in trouble for moving your car!
When I lived in Sydney it was pretty common for people to move their car to a parking spot to let others use the pump. I live regionally now and I don't notice people do this much.
I started this thread out of curiosity after being stuck waiting for a chappy today. He spent a good 5 minutes in the servo and swanned back casually with his coffee. I had a small truck behind me so I was unable to move. I just thought it was a bit rude, especially during the morning peak hour.
For the record I'd feel like a jerk if I did that to someone else. I would pay for the fuel quickly, then move the car to a parking spot and return to get my goodies.
Not a big deal, very much a first world problem!
