Mine's Total because I used to work in one. Not sure if they exist anymore. The one I worked in is now a Shell.
Sorry if you felt the title excluded you.
you noisey sluggish twat.
That's a lovely bank opposite it.
THE Brooklands race track!?
of a man.
The one by Hackney Downs is the cheapest petrol I've found in London. Was down to 126.9p a litre recently *thumbsup.jpg*
Failing that I'll go to Tesco for the Clubcard points. One in Angel Road always reasonable.
and it did the best crisps ever. Crisps (maize snacks) that you just don't get in normal shops. Like massive bags of onion rings and s&v sticks that are so wersh.

Used to go for a pot noodle at lunch at least thrice a week.
It's a vets now.
I still avoid Esso even though I'm sure they're all as bad as each other.
Cos that's what my folks' garages were.
Cos it's pun-tastic.
that poll the payment a working day later meaning free petrol if you fill up after 5pm on a friday
Partly because it's fun to say, but mostly because one night I stopped at the one on the A303 to get out and have a pee, but before I'd even stopped the engine a loud disembodied voice intoned MOVE AWAY FROM THE FORECOURT, MOVE AWAY FROM THE FORECOURT. It was about 3am and it right shat us up. Never forgotten it
Love niche petrol companies. They probably eat babies for breakfast but there's just something about smalltime brands with bad logos that I can really get behind. Think it might be in comic sans.
My favourite services is on the M6 near Carlisle I think, basically like a country club. Actually, not even sure it does petrol. Might just be that we stopped for a piss and an impromptu roast dinner at a country club.
At Gloucester yesterday.
The building is buried in an artificial hill and it has a farm shop and stuff. Interesting.
all in the one place though.
There's a farm shop and what looked like a decent quality little restaurant there and that was about it.
Only on the northbound side though, not built other side yet
if I'm trying to impress some birds then this one
- cheapest petrol
- pay at pump is easy
- there's a nifty deal relating to clubcard points at the moment where we get on average 8-10p off a litre - handy if we're filling the tank before a long journey.
By cannily charging xxx.7p rather than .9
it was the only one I ever saw, not sure that it's even there anymore
because of the world cup coins they used to bring out
Big signs avertising the current price, right down to the last .1 of a penny. Even if you take 5p off a litre, you will only save a couple of quid in a tank. Seems a lot but we wouldn't think twice about going out of our way to a specific shop to buy milk, bread and eggs and the like just to save a couple of quid. (well, some of us may do actually). Even sillier if we choose a petrol station which is less than 1p a litre different, then go and buy expensive milk in that actual petrol station's shop.
