BRECHIN POINT MARINA GAS PUMPS CLOSE

NO LONGER PUMPING REGULAR MARINE GAS

After years and years of supplying mariners with fuel, Esso has decided to close the pumps supplying gas to boaters.
The stations owner speculates the cost of cleaning up a possible fuel spill is a factor behind the decision.
This leaves the boating public with the Petro Canada fueling dock in the harbour as their only alternative in Nanaimo. Of course you can expect long line ups at peak times.
I don't know if it would do any good to contact Esso and make your concerns known if you are affected by this decision, but it could be worth a try.
In times past, owners of this station used to supply regular fishing and weather reports on the local radio station. The dock also supplies airplane fuel and diesel for the moment.
