Spotted - Petrol station in Chad

care for Euro 4 petrol?

Arriving at N'djamena city, the capital of Chad, I need to fly to Mondou airport; from here, another hour of land trip is needed before I reach Mangara Field, my jobsite.

On our way to Mangara, I was curious upon seeing these "stores" dotting the roads with display of glass bottles filled with murky liquid.

I asked some locals and they told me that these stores were actually "Petrol Station." Upon hearing that, I realized that I haven't seen any pump-operated petrol station outside N'djamena city. Playing with a famous idiom, necessity is the mother of ingenuity.
