filling station is a facility that sells fuel and engine lubricants for motor vehicles. The most common fuels sold in the 2010s were gasoline (gasoline or gas in the United States and Canada, generally petrol elsewhere) and diesel fuel. A filling station that sells only electric energy is also known as a charging station, while a typical filling station can also be known as a fueling station or gas station (United States, Canada, and New Zealand), gasbar (Canada), gasoline stand or SS[Note 1] (Japan), petrol pump or petrol bunk (IndiaPakistan and Bangladesh), garagepetrol station (AustraliaHong KongNew ZealandSingaporeSouth AfricaUnited Kingdom and Ireland), service station (Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Japan), servo (Australia), or fuel station (Israel).

Fuel dispensers are used to pump gasoline, diesel, compressed natural gasCGH2HCNGLPGliquid hydrogenkerosenealcohol fuel (like methanolethanolbutanolpropanol), biofuels (like straight vegetable oilbiodiesel), or other types of fuel into the tanks within vehicles and calculate the financial cost of the fuel transferred to the vehicle. Fuel dispensers are also known as bowsers (in some parts of Australia & in New Zealand),[1] petrol pumps (in most Commonwealth countries) or gas pumps (in North America). Besides fuel dispensers, one other significant device which is also found in filling stations and can refuel certain (compressed-air) vehicles is an air compressor, although generally these are just used to inflate car tires (tyres). Also, many filling stations incorporate a convenience store, which like most other buildings generally have electricity sockets; hence, in some cases, plug-in electric vehicles can be recharged.

The convenience stores found in filling stations typically sell confectionscigaretteslottery ticketssoft drinkssnacks and, in some cases, a small selection of grocery items, such as milk. Some also sell propane or butane and have added shops to their primary business. Conversely, some chain stores, such as supermarketsdiscount storeswarehouse clubs, or traditional convenience stores, have provided filling stations on the premises.
