Gotta develop your "hoppy two." IOW, yes, use the same finger, hopping it from one string to the other. There will be some situations where you can hold down both strings with the same finger and bow from string to string, but where's the showmanship in that?

Okay, thanks---I'll try using 3rd finger for the F#. But it will probably feel sinful until I get used to it ...
"4th finger A natural"
Something wrong there ...
Oh, I see, FM, you mean if I play the A on the D string. I don't know whether it is good, but I always play an open string when I can, so I would play that on the A string. I guess it isn't good, since it seems other people often don't do it that way.
@FM: sorry to be slow. I didn't see your post until now. I don't think the "new post" icon showed up when I went to my profile and listed all threads that I had posted to. Anyway here is the part having the C followed by F#:
How about this fingering, if it's a simplified version : (note for note)
3 3 1 0 3 || 3 2 2 0 1 2 || 0 3 3 1 0 3 || 3 2 2 0 1 2 ||
The only finger that changes position is the 1st, and only by a semitone.
What say you, Fiddlerman?
