Gas stations in Poland are similar to ones you would see in the United States. In many areas they also include a convenience store. The pumps are self-service, and you can pay by cash or credit card. The main national gas station brand is Orlen, and you will see international brands such as Shell, BP, Circle K, Esso and Neste as well. Gas stations are situated in large population centers and along major roadways. These are usually open 24 hours a day. In smaller towns and in rural areas, gas stations will be fewer and far between, and they tend to have a closing time, some as early as 6 p.m.

Typically, gas stations offer unleaded 95 and 98 octane fuel. Gasoline is denoted by the term benzyna. Diesel fuel is denoted by the term olej napedowy. Inquire before leaving the car rental office if your car takes either gasoline or diesel. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is denoted in Polish by either LPG or gazol.
