New Petrol Station Soi 94

Post by Pagey » Sun Mar 19, 2017 2:33 pm

There's a new petrol station being built on Soi Charon Pattana 2, driving from Soi 94 just past the Football Station on the opposite side of the road. Just hope the attendants are not as surly as the miserable git who operates the one on Soi 94.

Not sure where you mean, but that will be an improvement. The only petrol station on the south side of HH is the one over the flyover.
The one on Soi 94 has rigged pumps as has been proven many times. You can pay up to 40% more for fuel there.

It's on the road that runs between soi 94 and 102.
I don't believe that pump is rigged at all on 94 but as expected for a small independent outlet the price is much higher than the Shell, Essex, PTT etc probably the same price as buying from a bottle or a machine.

The operators on 94 are usually 10 Bt higher /liter and you will NEVER get a smile. You WILL get petrol spilled all over everything as they whip the nozzle out of the tank.

they have 2 pumps one about 8b higher and the other much higher--check the price and point to the lower price one.

Test it. You can get more litres in your bike there than at most other stations. It's not just the price per litre but the measurement of a litre!!!

Just passed the new station. Obviously not a mainstream petrol station, just another private 2 pump outfit. Not the improvement I was hoping for.

??? If that is the "new station" that the OP is on about? It's been there for for quite some time!

Well it's still being built and it's just where the OP described.

LOL - drove past it twice this morning. Even though it's exactly where the OP describes, I almost missed it the first time driving past. IMHO it's in the most unlikely of locations, and I think I'd struggle to get my truck alongside a pump. Of course, I might be wrong - it may all make sense when it's finished.

I don't know what the delay has been but it's finally opened nearly a year after building started.

I was told a while ago that they were having trouble getting a licence.

There was no obvious price board visible when I drove past earlier. How much per litre was it?

It'll be interesting to see how it competes with the other one on 94. That one has been getting away with 'doctored' pumps for years. The price on the pump doesn't always hold true.
