Regular fuel was advertised at $2.93 a gallon. After swiping my Ralph’s Rewards card at the pump it indicated I will be receiving a $0.20 cent discount at the pump. After selecting regular fuel, I noted the price on the digital display under the nozzle was showing the full $2.93 price. From prior experience at other stations the discounted price is usually indicated on this display. I continued pumping assuming the price would be reflected on my receipt. It was not. I was charged the full price of $2.93 for the fuel ($21.80). Oddly enough, at the bottom of my receipt was printed the phrase "You have received $0.10 per gallon on this visit by using Ralph’s Rewards." I was not even awarded this discount (7.416 gallons fuel X $2.939 =21.795).

When I brought this matter to the attention of the clerk she told me I would need to call a number to get this matter resolved (800-600-9003). Upon calling I was immediately peppered with advertisements. The initial recording did not even indicate I had reached Shell. After listening to a continuous stream of advertisements I gave up after 10 minutes and ended the call.

I found another customer service number for Shell (888-467-4355). I waited on hold for less than a minute before my call was answered, if you could call it that. Sounded like the person at the other end had dropped the phone several times before answering in a groggy voice. After briefly telling him of my problem he just put me on hold without even saying he would be doing so. Wow! I just ended the call.

I usually visited this Shell Gas Station because it’s so close to work, it’s on the way to catch the 5 South freeway, and historically one of the cheapest gas stations in the area. As you can see, this station worked into my favor. The only problem with this station was that the location was too good and the low prices brought everyone in the area to fill up here. To my disbelief and astonishment, this particular day wasn’t as busy!

This particular station was rather spacious but only had eight pumps of small with two wide aisles that housed two pumps on each side. Pulling into this station can also be a chore since it’s only accessible from one direction on McBean Pkwy. Or one direction on Valencia Blvd. (there are street islands on both streets so no access for traffic in the other direction). I easily pulled into my own aisle, gave my Ralphs Reward card, swiped the credit card, and the gas was released! Prices had just gone up again so it was relatively cheap ($3.79/gallon). I amused myself and watched whatever insipid programming was shown above the pump. Kind of ghetto as the screen was all scratched and tagged up by, I assumed, bored shitless teenagers. the My tank was quickly filled up…with barely 11 gallons of gas. Good for another four days or so!

There was no service to speak of. I mean, it was all self-serve. The pay station accepted both my Ralphs Rewards and credit cards, the gas hosed flowed quickly, there were squeegees and paper towels, and I got a receipt. Oh, and they had an air and water station.

Overall, This Shell Gas Station was like any other gas station…purely functional and nothing else. I found value as noted by the prices I quoted above (total bill was around $41.00; no tip required), so still cheaper other nearby stations. The atmosphere was clean, simplistic, it had a mini-mart, and the location again was good. The attire is pure casual, so put on the t-shirt, boardshorts, and flip flops. And they accepted my credit card of choice…AMEX!
