Gas 5 - Fuel & Mart is a chain of Premium Self Serve Drive Through Gas Stations found in Paradise City. They can refill a player's boost if driven through and are an integral part of all the events in Burnout Paradise.

They are useful during Race events when the player requires an immediate boost refill or top up. They are also useful in Burning Route events if the player needs to cut a few seconds off the time but lack the boost to do so. The Gas Stations can be used in any event or Freeburn Online to regain boost.

There are 14 Gas 5 - Fuel & Mart Stations on Mainland Paradise City and 2 found on Big Surf Island. The current price of fuel stands at $3.03 for Regular, $3.15 for Plus and $3.25 for Supreme at all Gas Stations throughout Paradise City. All Gas Stations are open 24 hours a day.

Sunset Valley Station


Sunset Valley Town's Gas Station can be found behind the Stadium along Chubb Lane and is placed on the eastern side of the road.

Lone Peaks Station


This Gas Station can be found not far from the Lone Peaks Stock Car Track. Refilling one's Boost bar through this station helps maintain a high speed when driving up the winding roads of South Mountain Drive.

Nearing the station from the South-East, the player has to choose his route. Staying on the Mountain Drive will enable them to effectively refill their Boost to 100% by passing through the gas station. Alternatively, one can choose to keep right and use a shortcut cutting through the mountain and jumping over the road thanks to peculiar rock formations. Either way, the player will gain Boost, but one must note that before the shortcut jump, the dirt track is straight and smooth, meaning that no Boost can be gained. Having no Boost at the end of the straight can compromise the stunt and racers having refilled their bar beforehand would be able to overtake the player.

This choice is easily made, depending largely on the amount of Boost the player has before the shorcut's entrance. Thus the player is advised to pass through the station if they have low Boost.

Perren's Point Station
