This is how I usually do it if I'm buying a drink or something.

Its so natural now to prepay I have to think about it when I fuel in the USA.

I don't see any reasonable person going inside to pay if they have the option of paying at the pump. It's easier, it's faster and more convenient.

But often enough, the debit/credit machines at gas stations don't work. Gas stations have downturns for their credit machines more times than we would expect. If the pump does not accept my card or if it requires me to choose an amount, I go inside and tell them "I don't know how much it's going to cost me to fill up...." They will either let me go fill up and come back in (which is usually the case because I have such a trusting appearance or they'll hold my credit card and I pay when I come inside again..
