BP Phillip

By Funky1 - 17 August 2012 41

Does anyone know what’s happening with the BP servo in Phillip?

At first I thought it was just going through a  re-branding or something minor, but it now looks like it’s being completely demolished.

Surely not making room for another car yard? 

What would you like to see there besides a car yard?

What’s Your opinion?

I don’t have HARD evidence, just what a mate told me.
He is an area manager for a petroleum company & apparently it is NSW standard to have a minimum 6% ethanol in unleaded.
Since all our fuel comes from NSW refineries, or through NSW…………………

Without wanting to interpret what your mate is saying, is it possible he’s referring to the NSW State Government policy requiring 6% of all unleaded petrol sales to be ethanol?

Note that this is ALL unleaded sales, so it really just means that for every 1 litre of regular non ethanol (or premium) unleaded to one customer, you probably need to sell around 2 litres of 10% unleaded (E10) petrol to another customer to achieve this.

Presumably this could be done fairly easy by modifying prices of E10 and regular or premium unleaded.

There isn’t a huge difference between the E10 and regular unleaded that has 6% ethanol anyway!

Want to provide some evidence to back your statement? I call wrong!

In the nicest possible way, your mate is full of it.

Ummm, it’s fairly common knowledge that Shell started it. Not sure what the other companies do though.

Thanks. That’s great to hear.

Must still be good money in petrol (dispite what the servo owners say whenever they put the price up)

Servo owners are barely a rung down the ladder from used car salesmen. My old man was one, and I’ve worked for four in total; not a single word from the mouth of any of them could be believed.
Did you ever see a poor servo owner (say, one who lives in a crappy little house or has less than four cars registered)? Plenty of $$ there, yet constantly crying poor-mouth. They’re a weird sub-species. Not unlike taxi owners.

Someone’s showing their age!
But wasn’t Ralph’s there before, not Marty’s?

Hear hear – did no-one else foresee the removal of the 91 pumps for E10?

It’s going to reopen in the new year some time. They’re digging up the tanks and putting in new ones, getting a larger LPG tank and putting it under ground, and perhaps building a new building. Basically a new shiny BP.

DarkLadyWolfMother 12:06 pm 17 Aug 12

There is (or was) a notice on one of the fences stating they were replacing the tanks and enlarging the awnings. I guess they figured since they’d have to tear down the awnings to get to the tanks anyway, they might as well remodel a bit.

Its being refurbished – there were signs up for months about it.
