Jeff's comments on this station:
This was an Amoco station until early November 2004. Look carefully at the pump.
You can tell that this once was an Amoco station. This station is located on
Farragut Parkway about 1/2 block or so south of the intersection of
Ravensdale Road in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. Before it became a Valero station,
it was an Amoco station for a great many years. This station never had more than
two pumps and they do a big business selling tires. Despite the realtively small
appearance at the front of the station, the interior is quite spacious and they
can work on a number of cars at once with plenty of room to spare. They also
specialize to at least some degree in upgrading the performance of people's cars.

Valero has been in the pipeline and refinery business for some time.
Their primary sales have been unbranded sales to other companies
such as Total and Exxon among many others.
Now that they have branched out into retail sales, they've acquired Beacon
and Ultramar-Diamond-Shamrock and sell gas under those names.
Valero began branding stations in the San Francisco area, and have now
branched out to Florida among other places.
J. Eric Freedner has sent this application which has the Valero logo on it.
