WHAT DOES GAS STATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

gas station

Filling station

A filling station, fuelling station, garage, gasbar, gas station, petrol bunk or petrol pump, petrol garage, petrol station, service station, a Services, or servo, is a facility which sells fuel and usually lubricants for motor vehicles. The most common fuels sold today are gasoline, diesel fuel, and electric energy. Filling stations that sell only electric energy are also known as charging stations. Fuel dispensers are used to pump petrol/gasoline, diesel, CNG, CGH2, HCNG, LPG, LH2, ethanol fuel, biofuels like biodiesel, kerosene, or other types of fuel into vehicles and calculate the financial cost of the fuel transferred to the vehicle. Fuel dispensers are also known as bowsers, petrol pumps or gas pumps. Many filling stations also combine small convenience stores, and some also sell propane or butane and have added shops to their primary business. Conversely, some chain stores, such as supermarkets, discount superstores, warehouse clubs, or traditional convenience stores, have provided filling stations on the premises.
