A new on-airport gas station and convenience store is open at Dulles International Airport to serve the expanding needs of travelers. With 14 fueling pumps, the Sunoco station and its 8,400-square-foot APlus store has more space and amenities than the Exxon station it replaces next door. Drivers arriving from the Dulles Greenway, Route 28 or the Dulles Access Highway can easily reach the new station just off the highway next to the Economy parking lot entrance. Getting in and out will be much easier than before, thanks to 80 parking spaces onsite. The Dulles gas station has long been a popular stop for refueling taxis and rental cars. Prices will remain competitive with the surrounding market.
Customers who come inside will discover a different kind of fuel in the new food options. The Laredo Taco Company has a tasty menu that includes homemade tortillas and fresh salsa made daily. The concept originated in Texas but was only
recently introduced in Virginia. A Subway sandwich shop that was the mainstay of the older store joins Laredo Taco at the new location. More seats and tables inside and outside offer customers the option to take a pause and relax before resuming their journey.
The new Sunoco station is yet another way Dulles International is transforming a trip to the airport into a world-class experience.
