Need assistance fuelling your car?
Sainsbury's petrol station colleagues are happy to help disabled or older customers fill up with fuel on the forecourt when needed.
They are proud to be the first supermarket to enable their customers to request assistance via FuelService. FuelService is an app which can be downloaded to your phone, or you can call to ask for help when you arrive at the forecourt. Just look out for the FuelService stickers on the forecourt giving you the number.
