The newest brand of independent fuel in Texas, Dallas-based Cox Petrol, continues its North Texas expansion with its sixth location and first truckstop at 8445 S. Lancaster Road and I-20 in Dallas.The station offers both diesel fuel and gasoline to accommodate drivers of both semi-trailer trucks and cars. Planned as a total remodel of the existing structure, the newest Cox Petrol station has already added new diesel pumps, making a total of 12 pumps, eight gasoline and four diesel, including two diesel pumps at the station's front entrance for car drivers and two additional diesel pumps on a back lot for easy-to-reach accessibility for truck drivers. "The two new diesel pumps added for semis fill-up at about 42 gallons a minute, which should be the fastest in the area and a true benefit for truck drivers on a tight schedule," said Michael Cox, vice president of sales at Cox Petrol.Cox expects the truckstop to be completed during the next three to four months, including a new canopy, digital sign and branding on each of the pumps. The company plans to convert some 30 stations in North Texas to its brand over the next year.
