2011 Ford Mustang: Best Gas Station in California

This is a bit of a leftover, I admit. However, when on my Mustang to Paso Robles journey I encountered the best gas station in California. Yeah, that's right, The Best. It's at highway 46 on the east side of the 101 just south of Paso Robles, where you could get off to go to Hearst Castle or the Firestone-Walker Brewery.

Why is it so good? Well, because they provide these long-handle squeegees, that's why. I may have longer arms than most, but this is a brilliant addition to a service station that can be enjoyed by all. No need to do one side of the windshield, then walk around to the other side to do that mostly ineffective arcing deal to finish it off. And get this, this Chevron station actually put soap in the squeegee reservoir! Soap! Amazing!

Sure, anything like that here in LA would result in vagabonds swarming on the long squeegees like locusts within 2 minutes and the soap being quickly diluted by old Mountain Dew and/or possibly urine. Nevertheless, I'll go out of my way to fill up at This Chevron in the future. So well done, you're The Best.
