Commercial Facility

A facility where motor fuel is dispensed, but which is not open to the general public for retail sales.

Individual companies – taxicab companies, car rental agencies or  truck lines– frequently maintain their own storage tanks and dispensers. Because these facilities are not open to the public, the equipment installed in them is often somewhat different from the equipment installed in conventional service stations.

Some commercial pumps are dispensers specifically designed for use at commercial locations. Instead of displaying a dollar-amount total for a fueling transaction, the pumps may display only the number of gallons dispensed.

Such pumps are also sometimes designed to be operated by a key or card.
