NOTE:  All Gas Stations and Parking Garage Models made by makeCNC will fit HO Scale Matchbox Cars or Hotwheels if made from 3mm or 1/8" Inch thick material scale. Fuel pumps have been purposely made a little larger than scale to make them usable by children. You can, however, scale them down if you would like more accurate "To scale" models.

The Interstate Gas Station

A filling station, fueling station, garage, gasbar, gas station, petrol bunk or petrol 
pump, petrol garage, petrol station, service station, or servo, is a facility which 
sells fuel and usually lubricants for motor vehicles. The most common fuels sold today 
are gasoline, diesel fuel, and electric energy. Filling stations that sell only electric 
energy are also known as charging stations.
Fuel dispensers are used to pump petrol/gasoline, diesel, CNG, CGH2, HCNG, LPG, LH2, 
ethanol fuel, biofuels like biodiesel, kerosene, or other types of fuel into vehicles 
and calculate the financial cost of the fuel transferred to the vehicle. Fuel dispensers 
are also known as bowsers, petrol pumps or gas pumps.
Many filling stations also combine small convenience stores, and some also sell propane 
or butane and have added shops to their primary business. Conversely, some chain stores, 
such as supermarkets, discount superstores, warehouse clubs, or traditional convenience 
stores, have provided filling stations on the premises.
Many stations provide toilet facilities for customer use, as well as squeegees and paper 
towels for customers to clean their vehicle's windows. Discount stations may not provide 
these amenities in some countries.
Stations typically have an air compressor, some with a built-in or provided handheld 
tire-pressure gauge, to inflate tires and a hose to add water to vehicle radiators. Some 
air compressor machines are free of charge, while others charge a small fee to use. In 
many U.S. states, state law requires that paying customers must be provided with free 
air compressor service. In most cases, a token provided by the attendant is used in lieu 
of coins.
Many filling stations have integrated convenience stores which sell food, beverages, and 
often cigarettes, lottery tickets, motor oil, and auto parts. Prices for these items 
tend to be higher than they would be at a supermarket or discount store.
Many stations, particularly in the United States, have a fast food outlet inside. These 
are usually "express" versions with limited seating and limited menus, though some may 
be regular-sized and have spacious seating. Larger restaurants are common at truck stops 
and toll road service plazas.
In some U.S. states, beer, wine, and liquor are sold in gas stations, though this 
practice varies according to state law. Nevada also allows the operation of slot and 
video poker machines without time restrictions.
Vacuum cleaners, often coin-operated, are a common amenity to allow the cleaning of 
vehicle interiors, either by the customer or by an attendant.
Some stations are equipped with car washes. Car washes are sometimes offered free of 
charge or at a discounted price with a certain amount of gas purchased. Conversely, some 
car washes operate filling stations to supplement their businesses.
From approximately 1920 to 1980, many service stations provided free road maps 
affiliated with their parent oil companies to customers. This practice fell out of favor 
due to the 1970s energy crisis.

(Exclusive to makeCNC

This Gas Station comes with a multi-page color assembly guide using photographic quality
rendering and assembly images. This model comes in 1/4", 1/8" and 1/2" scales with
1/8" being the smallest.
It also comes in 3mm, 6mm and 12mm sizes and two fully different scales sets for smaller or larger Routers or Lasers.
We have created the files as Laser ready meaning they do not have any dogbone fillets in the slots and tabs
but you also get a set of files with all the dogbone fillets in them so they are ready to toolpath and cut on your CNC router.

That's a total of over 20 file types scales and formats for this Interstate Gas Station!
All makeCNC houses, castles, gas stations and parking garages come in this format for the highest quality CNC projects on the market today!

PLEASE NOTE:   The largest part of this model is at 1/8" or 3mm thickness scale and will be no larger than 14 X 12" Inches so is ideal for smaller footprint lasers and CNC routers using tiny bits. At 1/4" or 6mm thickness scale the base would be 28 X 24" Inches. This model should be cut using a tool half the size of the slots so if you decided to cut from 1/4 inch material and you use the 1-4 file we provide then you should cut using a 1/8th bit to take advantage of the dogbone fillets in the vector line drawings. This model is a complex and challenging one so Enjoy if you are up to the task!
