We usually point people directly to the Forum to ask questions, and invite them to get involved with other discussions, but I failed to do that here and for expediency’s sake, am posting the question on behalf of a person who e-mailed us:
“Do any of your readers know of any full service gas stations in the greater west seattle area? I’m asking this question for an elderly friend, who because of physical limitations, cannot operate a gas pump any longer, by herself.”
Thanks for replies – I’ll point the asker to this thread.

Doesn’t the Chevron, at 35th & Holden, across from new FS 37, have at least a full service island?

The shell station in the Admiral district is Barnecuts. It has been around for over 50 years and is full service.June 29, 2012 at 6:10 pm #762278

jimmy you are correct to a point; however if there is only one employee on site I believe they are exemptedJune 29, 2012 at 7:30 pm #762280
Yes, Chevron on 35th and Holden is full service (the island closest to the store/shop).June 29, 2012 at 9:54 pm #762281
in WA, if you show your disability parking placard, the full service stations will use the self-service pump, which saves a lot of money. They are not required to do ‘full service’ tasks such as checking tires & oil or cleaning windows, but they often wash at least the windshield if they aren’t busy. I went to Barnecutt’s when I lived in that area and the Chevron at 35/Holden now and always received good service. The Chevron also has a drive-thru car wash for an extra fee.
Even so, it can be tough to find a station where employees are familiar with this requirement. I would suggest keeping the tank 1/2 full, unless you are a pessimist …June 29, 2012 at 10:00 pm #762282
