Barrie Richards, proprietor of St Blazey Service Station, Cornwall has selected Gulf as his fuel brand for a further five years. The family business, which he operates with his wife Jean and son Charles, pumps 4.5mlpa and includes a convenience store, off licence and Cornwall’s premier car wash centre comprising four jet washes, one drive-through, five vacs and two air machines. The site is a regular winner of industry awards for presentation and service.

"It is fair to say that I am extremely demanding of my fuel supplier," reflects Barrie. "We have built up a successful business over the years by investing, delivering the highest service levels and adapting to changes in consumer behaviour. We are a hub of the local community, our forecourt staff are incredibly hard working and dedicated, and it is therefore essential that we choose the right fuel brand.

"Throughout the current agreement we have been very happy with the Gulf brand and the quality of service provided by fuel supplier Certas Energy."
