MFG (Motor Fuel Group) is currently the biggest forecourt operator in the UK.


MFG was formed on the basis that a new subsidary company would be formed every time the founders acquired a new series of sites, making the business easier to manage. Under its own independent banner, MFG grew to over 900 sites, and they are currently working on bringing all the companies under one banner.

They formerly used Costcutter as a shop brand, but entered a deal with Booker in 2016, bringing Budgens and Londis into their network. Most Costcutter stores were re-branded by the end of 2016.


In 2015, MFG acquired some forecourts from Shell including sites on A-roads; the retail parts of which were refurbished to include the standard MFG offering of Costcutter, later Londis.
