Filling station

A filling station in Sabah, Malaysia, operated by Royal Dutch Shell. Filling stations, also known under a wide variety of names, are facilities that sell fuel and engine lubricants for motor vehicles. They include one or more fuel dispensers, which distribute fuels such as petrol and diesel into the tanks within vehicles and calculate the financial cost of the fuel transferred. Filling stations may also include air compressors to inflate tyres and electricity sockets acting as charging stations. Many filling stations also incorporate a convenience store, where customers can purchase snacks and other goods.
