Thousands of miles saved by wells-next-the-sea motorists

In its first six months, more than 30,000 motorists enough to fill Norwich City’s Carrow Road Stadium, have visited the new Gulf 24 hour forecourt in Wells-Next-The-Sea, ensuring that residents and businesses from the coastal port no longer have to travel to fill-up.

With many previously forced to undertake a round trip of 12 miles to fill up, the miles saved equates to fourteen road trips around the world!

“We are delighted that our Gulf Fuel Express is proving to be so popular, both in terms of convenience and supporting the community,” explains Matthew Bellamy who heads up the Fuel Express business for Gulf Retail. “As well as keeping the local economy moving, there is a significant saving of time and money and the obvious environmental benefit of reducing fuel consumption.”

When Pauline Catton from Wells Town Council helped to officially launch the new Gulf Retail Fuel Express forecourt in Wells-next-the-Sea, she made it clear that both local residents and holidaymakers had been crying out for such a facility and it would be hugely beneficial for the town and its economy. Those sentiments have been vindicated in a town that had been without a filling station for over 10 years until the Gulf site opened.

The Gulf Fuel Express is a pay at the pump forecourt that utilises the latest technology and accepts all major credit and debits cards, Key Fuels, UK Fuels and Allstar fuel cards. The state-of-the-art site also offers an air machine and water with integrated screen wash.
