Standard of Quality
Imagine pulling off the highway after a long trip and seeing two gas stations: an independently owned station with an unknown local brand, ABC Fuel Mart, and a station with a familiar brand that you know is clean and carries TOP TIER® Detergent Gasoline. Millions of Americans make this decision every day. By aligning yourself with a strong brand that offers high-quality gasoline and maintains exceptional standards, you'll increase the perceived value of your site; consumers will migrate to it because of their familiarity with similar locations.
That's why Phillips 66 brands offer TOP TIER® Detergent Gasoline. Our gasoline has three times more detergent additives than the minimum required by the EPA, and that can be a traffic driver for performance-savvy consumers in tune with the standards of the world's top automakers.
It's possible some price-sensitive consumers may choose an independent station for a lower fuel price. However, competing on price alone can result in a race to the bottom, especially when big-box retailers can cut fuel costs just to get patrons in the door. By projecting a quality image and targeting customers willing to pay a small premium for the right amenities, site owners can establish a secure path to success.
One in seven motorists consider fuel brand as the top reason for their purchasing decision.

When considering entering the fuel industry, are you concerned about getting a steady source of supply? Phillips 66 ensures you receive your monthly fuel allotment as outlined in the fuel contract. This is a critical component that independent stores often overlook. Many independent fuel suppliers purchase fuel without a designated contract. In times of supply shortage, they may be unable to secure adequate volume for their stores. If a station shuts down for a few days, it can be devastating for profits. During times of plentiful supply, independents who are not on a fuel contract may save a few cents per gallon on unbranded fuel, but they are at risk for losing substantial revenue if their fuel source tightens supply.
