Nozzle know-how

You know your pumps need replacing when the dispensing rate slows down, caused typically by the pumping unit wearing out and reducing suction. Then there's the problem of meter drift, which can again happen over time, and means you're giving your fuel away.

Electric shock

The announcement that the government is planning to bring forward the ban on the sale of new petrol, diesel and now hybrid vehicles to 2035 or sooner has sent shockwaves through the industry. Though dealers understand that alternative fuels have to be on the agenda, many believe the full-throttle rush into electric has not been thoroughly thought through.

Trigger happy

Lincolnshire Co-op's £1.6m redevelopment of its Whaplode Food Store and Filling Station included major work on the forecourt itself. It was reconfigured to improve the exit and to make better use of space around the pumps, which allowed new customer parking to be created in front of the new, larger food store. A small patch of scrubland on the site was also converted to add further parking. This was done to allow customers to spend more time in the new store, which has double the retail area compared to the site's old kiosk. There was investment too in forecourt equipment with four new Tokheim Quantium 510 pumps, each with three hoses either side. Other improvements included LED lighting and technology to simplify deliveries of fuel to the site, and the entire canopy was replaced to complete the forecourt's new look.
