Three former Total dealers have rebranded to Gulf with a further 12 to follow over the next two months. These include Martins of Andover, Hampshire, and the 3.3mlpa Bishops of Bromyard, Hertforshire.

Jenny Lockwood, national accounts manager at GB Oils, said: “These dealers recognise the potential of the Gulf brand for the future of their businesses whilst knowing that their day-to-day working relationships will continue with the same people.

“Gulf offers a powerful brand image, a strong support package and secure supply arrangements across the UK.”
