The Chinese word 加油站 refers to a gas station or petrol station. It is commonly used in China and other Mandarin-speaking countries to refer to a place where vehicles can fill up with gasoline or diesel fuel. The word 加油 literally means “add oil” and is used as a phrase of encouragement, similar to “keep going” or “you can do it”. In this context, 加油站 can also be seen as a place where drivers can “refuel” or recharge themselves before continuing on their journey.
