Corporate Sites

Most filling stations are operated by companies who have nothing to do with the fuel supplier - for example, Esso supply fuel to some Euro Garages forecourts, but Euro Garages operate the filling station themselves with their choice of shop.

However, sometimes, the fuel majors actually operate their own sites. This page should inform you on how to know whether a filling station is corporately operated.

Just to reiterate, this site is not affiliated with any operator, so please do not contact us if you wish to make a comment about any service you have received.

Shell mainly operate filling stations under the "Select" fascia which usually comes with a food offering called Deli2go.

If the site is not:

  • Attached to a Welcome Break service area
  • Branded as Select Shop or Select Food Store rather than simply Select
  • Branded as Spar, Londis, Mace or another branded offering,

Shell themselves should operate that site. Contact the operator if you are unsure.
