Gas ,Gasoline,Petroleum station=Benzinaio
“IL PIENO PER FAVORE” = Fill it up,please
Driving around Tuscany, you need fuel ”benzina “ or “diesel “.
Every single little town has a station.
On the highway and in town they may also have a convenience store, selling snacks, candy and drinks All of the stations are 24/24 self-service
Instructions for using the machine are most of the time on the small display screen, sometimes on stickers below the slot where to insert the note
All of the station have an attendant operating the pump
7:30 to 13:00 Mon./Sat. and 3:30 to 7:30 pm Mon./Fri
And you’ll see the notice “Servito“.Here you pay a little bit more, but if you are pump operating dummy as I am, you’ll prefer this choice.The attendant often wipes the windshield, and you pay the attendant
Price, always higher than in Extra-European countries, is advertised on large signs outside stations.
On the highway or in the major towns use the self-service system, in smaller towns in the countryside the attendant can be helpful and most of the time he/she is available to give you a suggestion about places where to go and eat.
Now ,choose your car and “Buon Viaggio “!!!
