EVANS Petroleum’s BP Westside service station in Leongatha opened recently, after undergoing a full rebuild over the last several months.

Completed by local contractors, the new service station is open from 5am to midnight seven days a week and is designed to be user friendly for all vehicle owners.

Evans Petroleum managing director Stuart Evans said the old service station located on the site was well past its use by date and in need of being replaced.

He said the new station is more user friendly for large vehicles compared to the Bair Street location and should encourage heavy vehicles to avoid the main street.

“We had the rebuild planned for quite a few years, but were waiting on the details of the Leongatha bypass before we went ahead,” he said.

The shop at the new station is bigger than before and features a huge range of food options, as well as delicious barista coffee.

“We will have freshly made food on site as well as hot food. We will have the ability to heat up food quickly as well,” Mr Evans said.

“There will be more cafe food on offer and a sit down area as well.”

The usual convenience and car care items are also available from the service station, including oils, firewood, gas bottles and trailer hire.

The new station has three rows of pumps, with around 30 hoses and features all products including unleaded, premium unleaded, ultimate unleaded, diesel and ultimate diesel.

There is no LPG gas pump on site.

AdBLue, a diesel exhaust fluid, is also available at the pump and the station features the latest leak detection and tank monitoring technology requirements.

Mr Evans said using local contractors was a highlight of the rebuild.

“I can’t thank them enough for their extra efforts, especially at the tail end to get it open before Christmas,” he said.

“They have all done a great job of getting it happening. We are really happy with the way it came up.”
