Many motorists are frustrated at the new pre-pay fuel system at local Texaco petrol stations.

Motorists that are unaware of the pre-pay system firstly have to attract the attention of  counter staff from the forecourt.

Customers then have to go into the station to pre-pay for fuel, and then return to the station for a receipt once they have got their fuel.

The pre-pay system kicks into force from 8:00pm each night.

One motorist using the Texaco petrol station on Southport Road, Ormskirk said: ”I will be avoiding the pre-pay stations in future”
