A filling station, gas station or petrol station is a facility which sells fuel and lubricants for road motor vehicles.

The most common fuels sold are gasoline (petrol) or diesel fuel.

Some stations carry specialty fuels such as liquified petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas, hydrogen, biodiesel, or kerosene.
