buying gas

We are renting a car. When we are at a gas station to buy gas, will it take our credit card? We are from the US. Or do we have to use cash?

You'll have to go to a manned booth -- they'll be able to process your American credit card or take cash.

Be very sure to fill the tank before a Sunday--the manned booths are often closed at that time. You can usually get (relatively) good rates at the large supermarkets' station, such as Auchan.

And in rural areas, there may not be anyone on duty during the French lunch break - say 12.00 to 15.00.

Always have cash with you just in case.

This excellent government site gives details of petrol stations all over France. SP 95 is 'regular' unleaded gasoline : SP 95 + e10 - contains ethanol : gaseol is diesel. Ghost stations are unfortunately increasingly common in France due to labour costs but the supermarket sites are generally manned - as well as being cheaper.
