I think the problem is (for the non-arrogant/non jerk people)as has been outlined in this thread, is simply that people are unsure what they're supposed to do, some people are told to pay then move, others are told to move then pay, no wonder people get it wrong.

The servo I worked at also had a cafe inside, can't tell you how many people would fill up, move their cars and come inside to order lunch etc- can't imagine the backlog of cars lining up if they had to actually pay before we could activate for the next customer!
I guess not all work that way though.

Generally there is no one waiting when I get petrol, but when there is I usually just go in and pay without moving my car. Unless it's really really busy (maybe once or twice ever) then I haven't really considered finding a park first. It doesn't bother me at all to have to wait a few mins while someone pays for petrol - I didn't realise it would bother people so much! That being said, I wouldn't stay and wait for a coffee - in that instance I would move.

I think that the various service stations probably have different preferences and expectations and that's why people have been told different things by staff. I know in my area there's been a big increase in people driving off without paying, and that may make the staff jumpier about it.

I have always moved into the parking bit when there is a line up, but now after reading this thread it seems like it was the wrong thing to do.
