"...quick review on my local Texaco garage, after using it only yesterday. For those of you who are actually currently unaware of the set up of the establishment at the moment, then it would appear that Texaco are run on franchises.

100 litres per week

AdvantagesGood Coverage in my area, offer rewards card

DisadvantagesStaff sometimes a bit pre-occupied

"...Road in Poole is a Texaco and they offer a star points card, which allows you to collect 1 star point per pound spent, I was horrified at just how quickly I achieved 2,500 points, which I exchanged for £25 worth of high street shopping vouchers, just in time for Christmas. Thankfully my company gives me an Allstar fuel card so I don't have to pay for it! The forecourts are quite reasonable, having a diesel car means that it is quite important ..." Read review
