And while some may mourn the passing of the 52-year old brand known for its high-quality of customers service and the commitment of the staff to the local communities where they operated, BG Fuels wrote that the “retirement of the Mr. Gas brand represents the evolution of BG Fuels’ retail fuel business and presents an exciting opportunity to provide the communities we serve with an enhanced consumer value proposition”

“Mr. Gas had a great run, and the BG Fuels team is proud to have played a part in the storied history of the brand, but an increasingly competitive landscape has led us to align our retail fuel business with Imperial’s industry-leading Esso and Mobil brands” says Andrew Mackay, president of BG Fuels. “We thank all of our Mr. Gas customers for their patronage over the years and hope they will continue to allow us to meet their fuel and convenience needs after the sites are rebranded and refreshed.”
