  About the use of the gas station

Regarding the gas stations, there are full service stands which the staff does all processes from refueling to the adjustment and self-service stands which you serve yourself. When you travel for a long distance, we recommend you confirm the amount of the remaining gasoline regularly, and refuel a little earlier.
Please note that gas stations in major cities usually open from morning till night, while those in local towns may close early.
