Even if there's 1 car waiting and I'm just paying for fuel I always move it. There's only 1 diesel bowser at the servo so it's not like they can go to another pump. I live in a tiny country town though.

Go in and pay first, then move the car to a parking bay and go back inside to purchase whatever. I think it is rude to block other cars for that amount of time. It's different when there's a line up to pay inside but to go about your business inside knowing you are blocking access is deliberately being inconsiderate IMO.
In saying that, I've driven around cars before to get to the other vacant pump and reversed back in if the space was wide enough

I pay first than move the car if I want something.

I didn't know you could get in trouble! If the bowsers are full, I would definitely pull into a parking bay to pay and in fact did the last time I got pregnant. I've never gotten in trouble for it!

I need to get Diesel fuel for our cars, so quite often there is always a bit of a wait for those pumps and one particularly busy morning I was waiting behind a car for over fifteen minutes, time was getting away and I finally had enough and went in to see what was taking him so long. It turned out that he had left his wallet at home so was speaking with the cashier and writing his details down to come back later and pay.
In this instance, he didn't move the car, nor was he told to. (It's an independent Fuel station, so there's only one Diesel pump).
As for me in answering the OP, I would always pay first and if I knew I was going to be a while would move the car after I had paid.

I would and always do move my car before going in to pay if others are waiting. I can't imagine not doing so, I'd feel like an as$hole if I didn't... I can't comprehend people who are so inconsiderate.

I used to work at BP and people moving their cars before coming in to pay was never an issue. Once the pump was hung back up, we could activate it for the next car, regardless of whether the previous person had paid yet.

Definitely move the car. I do it all the time because I'm usually using the only right-hand gas pump. I've never had a staff member complain.
