    When Safeway first installed self-service unattended pumps in the mid-1990s the limit was £50
    Petrol at the time was 40p per litre

    The limit is set by the card issuer
    For most Debit cards the limit has only recently been raised from £50 to £100
    For Credit cards and Fuel cards the limit varies between £100 and £250

    I remember going up north once and stopping to refuel, and there was a sign on each pump saying "payment MUST be made at the kiosk BEFORE fuel is dispensed". I went inside and asked if that was for real, the attendant looked at me, looked out the window at my car, and said "Nah, you're ok, go ahead".
