If there’s one thing I HATE doing as a parent, it is going to the petrol station with my daughter in the car. Not only do I always manage to spill petrol on myself while filling the tank, but then there’s the act of dragging my poor child in and out of the car while reflecting evil looks from other people who think I’m taking too long. I've also been accused of driving off without paying for fuel and interrogated by the police, so my experience of buying fuel is generally tainted.
This is why I either wait until I’m alone, have someone else in the car with me or I head to the local unmanned petrol station. I just find it easier to pay, fill up and off we go. But where do you find these magic petrol pumps? Thanks to a reader request, Perth Mums Group has put together a list of all the unmanned petrol stations around Perth, plus those that have a ‘pay at pump’ feature.
South of Perth
Puma, Atwell 45 Armadale Road, Jandakot
Puma Henderson 81 Quill Way, Henderson
Puma Kwinana Corner Old Mandurah Road and Beach Street, Kwinana
Caltex StarMart and Caltex Woolworths Pay At Pump Unfortunately it seems there are no unmanned fuel stations north of the river, according to WA’s Fuelwatch website. Many Caltex Star Mart and Caltex Woolworths petrol stations, however, do have a ‘Pay At Pump’ feature, which allows you to pay at the pump without having to go into the petrol station. You can find your nearest Caltex Service Station with this option by checking the website and searching within your suburb.
Do you live close to an unmanned petrol station that hasn’t made the list? Feel free to leave a comment and we’ll add it to the list.
