Fuel, is the four letter word for that general purpose liquid at the centre of most of our activities. Begin to imagine how far you will go on that journey if the car you are travelling in has no fuel or even how well you can run your business or power your house when PHCN gets wobbly, as they always do. Now, Premium Motor Spirit a.k.a petrol, is probably the greater part in a fuel family that has Kerosine as a cousin, Diesel as a nephew, gas as a second generation niece and then all others as family members. Ok, semantics aside, if you want to buy petrol in Calabar, these are the Best 5 Places to go to.
1. PROPEL FILLING STATION:
The station is located by the Flour Mills junction as you enter Calabar and the owners of this station have under two years of opening shop, employed a simple customer satisfaction strategy which has in turn drawn to them, a steady stream of customers. Their metres have ‘refused to be tampered with to a hurting level and for sure their petrol is better than what a couple of stations around them sell to customers; it is the reason for the long queues you always find there while other stations stay empty.
2. NORTHWEST PETROLEUM MEGA STATION
Built in the mould of the famous NNPC mega stations, those who put this station together, located it in a great place, the new Parliamentary Road extension. When there’s fuel scarcity in Calabar, this tank farm backed station always has a seemingly endless and affordable petrol supply that crackles this town to life.
3. OANDO FILLING STATION.
Don’t get it twisted, Oando has a chain of stations in Calabar but the one opposite the U. J. Esuene stadium just about stands out. Their fuel metering is good eventhough you need some patience with the attendants. Don’t ask us what the attendants do just get your top up and zoom off.
4. THE NEURO-PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL FILLING STATION
This station is in the premises of the Psychiatric hospital on Calabar Road, Calabar, clearly away from the ‘tenants’ of the hospital. We know that not many people know about this station but it is there, working and servicing the needs of staff and the general public. The metres…? They are correct.
5. NNPC MEGA STATION
It came to town with a buzz and appropriate metering. Everyone in Calabar who could go there, went there and life has never been this good. On the Murtala Muhammed highway where the station stands, an endless stream of cars ensure that the drive-in and drive-out routine doesn’t cease.
