Tanker filling stations for commercial operators

From time-to-time we have to close filling stations or reduce their flow rates due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. power outages) or low reservoir levels. We understand the importance of our filling stations to many Auckland communities and therefore will keep these closures to an absolute minimum.
