Top 50 Indies forecourt operator, Motor Fuel Group (MFG) has grown its network to 60 sites with the acquisition of two former Shell company stations.

MFG managing director Jeremy Clarke said: “This acquisition adds another two high volume stations to our network. Both stations, one in Woodston, Peterborough, and one in St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, will be BP branded and after a shop refit they will be offering the extensive and competitive range of Costcutter products.

“It’s good to start a new year with some positive news. We will continue to look at opportunities for growth during 2014. However, any additional stations must meet our high volume, high standard criteria and have the potential to add value to our network.

“We are determined to grow our network with assets that fit into our proven forecourt model; we get a good return and our customers get a great forecourt and shop offer.”
