My weekend car cleaning time is "my time". No cell phone, some good Blues on the garage stereo, my dog for company and a midstream libation ... very therapeutic.

You use your credit card, no problem. Like here in the States there are different levels of automation - some are pay at the pump, some you pump then go inside and pay.

You didn't say you had an FJ1200 !

I had the same thing - approx same mileage as you. I haven't heard it in a while - planned on mentioning it next time I'm in the shop. It sounded exactly like a squeaky spring.
