Commercial Fuel Stations Compared to Retail Gas Stations

Commercial Fuel Stations Compared to Retail Gas Stations

This blog will break down the differences between commercial and retail fuel stations.

While the usual retail gas station may come to mind when you’re thinking of fueling up, there are two different kinds of fueling stations. Commuters and delivery drivers typically depend on retail gas stations to fuel up and continue driving. However, where do semi-trucks and other big vehicles get their fuel? The answer is that commercial fuel stations where they are able to increase their efficiency and quickly get back on the roads. Read on to learn more!

What Makes a Commercial Fuel Station?

When you think of a gas station, you probably think of trucks, cars, or even the occasional van. Usually, there’s a store or booth with products for sale and lavatories for travelers. However, a lot of larger commercial vehicles like semi-trucks, box trucks, and large vehicle fleets populate the roadways and fuel up at commercial fuel stations. Since retail stores usually have congestion due to traffic from vehicles and people going inside for drinks and bathroom breaks, commercial fueling stations are more efficient. However, businesses that use commercial vehicles can benefit from commercial fuel stations since they increase their level of productivity. Drivers can get their fuel and go where they have to without getting caught up in the traffic of retail gas stations. Companies that work in trucking, construction, distribution, and manufacturing use commercial fueling stations in order to get reasonable rates on the fuel they need to do their business. Once drivers have the convenience of using commercial fueling stations, they can then spend more time on the roads and on job sites.

What Are the Kinds of Commercial Fueling Stations?

Commercial fuel stations, unlike retail stations, carry diesel fuel. While you might only see one diesel fueling station at traditional gas stations, commercial stations have all kinds of fuel options for different business needs, such as diesel fuel, gasoline, diesel exhaust fluid, and red-dyed diesel.
