Paying for gas with cash?

I recently got a car and so far I've only used my parent's credit card to pay for gas. My parents are out of town and I need gas for a school event but all I have is cash. Can someone please give me an example of what I would say to the clerk when I pay for gas? And if I need money back that wasn't used

I recently got a car and so far I've only used my parent's credit card to pay for gas. My parents are out of town and I need gas for a school event but all I have is cash. Can someone please give me an example of what I would say to the clerk when I pay for gas? And if I need money back that wasn't used to fill my tank, do I just go back inside and ask for the change?

Best Answer:

unknown: This may vary from one station to another, but usually, the process is that you just hand over your cash and state the pump number. If you don't want to put the whole amount down, you would just say the amount, for example, handing the clerk at $20, and say you want $10 on pump 3", the clerk will return the difference.
If you pay for more than you pump, you just come back and ask for your change and indicate which pump.

Mary:
Usually when one pays for cash, you can just say "I'd like $10.00 on pump 3" and they will open the pump for you. You will need to go inside again to get the receipt, if you needed one.
Chuckles:
You go to the cashier and give them enough money for the tank of gas and then some. After filling, they will give you the change.
DR + Mrs Bears face:
HI just go to the cashier and pay what you owe for the gas they change larger bills.
John:
YES…..you just go in and put a deposit ,….OR easier is what ever amount you want, on PUMP #…..what-ever, they will set the pump to stop at that Dollar amount, ….then you dont need to go back inside
