| +/- amenity=fuel
Used to mark filling stations
The fuel tag is used to map a fuel station, also known as a filling station, petrol station, gas station and petrol garage. It is the retail-type facility where vehicles can be refueled.
How to Map
Add a node at the centre of the fuel station and add amenity=fuel to it. Often the station is operated operator=* by one of the major brands brand=* and has a tenant tenant=*. If the station has a name of its own, that can be tagged too using name=*. Tag the building related to the fuel station as building=yes and optionally with its opening hours opening_hours=*. Use the maxheight=* tag indicate the maximum height (in meters, like 3.8) for a vehicle that can use the fuel pumps.
Surroundings: ways and area
It is also a good idea to map the ways leading to, through and away from the fuel station as highway=service. The area around the fuel pumps are tagged as area:highway=service and surface=*. Alternatively the area itself can be tagged amenity=fuel instead of tagging the fuels station with a node.
- Kiosk: Add shop=kiosk (default is kiosk=no) to the fuel station if a kiosk exists. Alternatively:
- Convenience: Add shop=convenience to the fuel station if there is a convenience shop as part of the gas station.
- Car Wash: Add an additional node amenity=car_wash if there is a car wash on site.
- Toilets: There may be toilets related to the fuel station. Map toilets as an additional node with amenity=toilets.
