You might want to extend your search to:

Filling and service stations or Petrol pump (follow link below).

That's a broad question. A good place to start is NFPA 30A, Code for Motor Fuel Dispensing Facilities and Repair Garage, then check for the codes and standards in the country and locale where it will be located.

It may depend on whether you are trying to (re)design the Teapot Dome gas station near Zillah, WA, USA; or the Little America truck stop in Wyoming.

Considering the number of abandoned gas stations that will require extensive remediation due to leaks, you answer is right on.

Another detail in your link: Guard Rails. My brother was in line waiting to pay for his gas when a drunk powered Cadillac crashed through the window knocking several customers to the back of the station. The pump lanes were inline with the store front. They later installed large guard rails.

I like the 0.50cts ice cream cones at little america. Chocolate or Vanilla, your choice.

Unless he wants to know if the bathrooms should be inside or outside, if they need space to sell beer or what color to paint it. All can loosely be defined as 'design'. -- JHF

The major suppliers (Shell, BP, etc.) used to supply installation guidance notes.
you may find it helpful to ask them? They may even quote the ref. numbers.

Councils say they're losing £30 million a year in unpaid parking fines.
If they halve the cost of a fine, they'll only lose £15 million.

I phrased the question too vaguely.

I am looking for mechanical (double wall tank, 1/2 hp pump) and electrical (relays and breakers and wire and conduit types) notes. Specifics so when I see an existing installation, I can say (for example) wrong type wire, pump too small, conduit type not allowed in hazardous location, or whatever.

JT, you got me headed in the right direction, I wrote the Big 6 Oil Cos. asking for their installation guidance notes. Thank you Sir!

Thank you for the compliment, just common sense really.

(Always ask the professional - they do it for a living!)

Glad to be of help. jt
