On the 12th February 2007, one of the leading independent forecourt operators in UK, Karan Retail Ltd (KRL) was formed. From day one of the business the management team’s plan has remained the same – ‘To become the UK’s most dynamic and profitable independent forecourt operator.

KRL company stations operate under the GULF fuel brand and all with an attractive, competitive and expanding forecourt shop offer under the PREMIER brand.

From March 2011, KRL decided to launch GULF as an exclusive dealer brand. The 750 strong dealer network will continue to use this well recognised brand and with its dedicated team Certas Energy intends to grow, develop and strengthen a very flexible dealer offer, building on the great service and delivery standards that GULF has always been known for.

KRL intends to continue to offer its customers the premium fuel brands coupled with an attractive, competitive and expanding forecourt shop offer for today’s cost conscious consumers.

Our key objective is to make all visits to a KRL forecourt as pleasurable as possible. We aim to provide our customers with high levels of service; good quality, competitively priced fuels and, of course, a convenient and competitive shopping experience.

Our shops will provide customers with an exceptional product range from top name brands, ongoing value promotions and a shopping environment to match any of the multiples.
