Bye bye Bundy Mobil
BUNDABERG drivers will notice a big change in the coming weeks with the Mobil brand disappearing from the region.
Wessel Petroleum owner Paul Wessel is rebranding the eight service stations he owns to BP Service Stations.
The change comes as Mobil exits the market with Caltex buying the brand out.
Mr Wessel is looking forward to the change.
“It's pretty exciting, the rebranding will put us in a stronger position to offer a better product to our customers,” he said.
The change will begin on October 12 with new signage being installed; this is expected to be completed mid-December.
The service stations include three in Bundaberg, one in Gin Gin, Torbanlea, Hervey Bay and two in Maryborough.
Several of the shops will also be refurbished next year in time for Easter.
Mobil cards will be made redundant as of November 1, but customers will have several other options in place of the cards.
The current Mobil sales such as the 4 cents per litre deal will still be available in the Wessel Petroleum stores.
The rebranding is expected to cost around $2 million.
Mr Wessel said a better supply of fuel will be available with the refinery being in Brisbane.
“It's a big plus having the refinery in our backyard,” he said.
