What we like
- One of the most popular rewards programs in Canada PC Optimum points can be earned at most Esso stations.
- Newer Esso's in busier areas often have a Tim Horton's or other restaurant attached.
- Usually have a convenience store of some kind.
- The experience between different Esso's can be very inconsistent. Some are brand new, clean, and well maintained with premium and diesel fuel available. Some are much older and in worse repair, with limited services and products available. This makes it harder to know what to expect when you see the Esso sign. I find that Petro-Canada and Shell stations tend to be much more consistent in what they offer for instance.
ConclusionMost Esso stations are newer, with super clean bathrooms, great facilities, and lots of services but just because a station is an Esso there isn't any guarantee on what you're going to get especially on First Nations where the stations are independently owned and operated. That being said, some of the smaller or older Esso's still provide great services and experiences, so you might want to stop in and find out for yourself anyway!
