At The Gas Stop's more than 20 locations across Minnesota and South Dakota, customers can pull into automated car-wash bays, where their cars receive beautifying polishes and foam baths. Gas pumps stand by to replenish tanks, and an indoor deli sates customer appetites for everything from coffee and ice cream to taquitos and salads. The Gas Stop supports good causes throughout its communities, such as the Land O' Lakes Save Five for Schools program, which helps increase school budgets while bringing high-fives back into the K–12 curriculum.

As Silverstar's most senior variety of wash, the Ultimate features extra foam and eight kinds of soap that automatically lather up in anticipation whenever they see a grimy vehicle. Expert hands use high-pressure wands to massage your car's dirty dermis, and an under-body bath tickles your car's sensitive belly until it giggles and spews gas out of its newly gleaming grill. Then, to keep unsightly boots from holding your car hostage, a thorough wheel and tire scrub fits your auto’s feet with like-new shoes. Heated dryers blast chilly cars with warm air, and after the wash, unlimited access to self-service interior vacuums will give Groupon buyers the power to suck up excess dirt, oxygen, and corn-dog hair.

Hunter Automotive owner Jim Hunter has been leading a team of friendly, honest mechanics in the same location for more than 18 years. All technicians are ASE certified and focused on building professional, trusting relationships with customers. Oil changes include a filter replacement and provide up to five quarts of synthetic-blend oil, which is enough for most cars, except for really, really thirsty ones. A friendly mechanic will then administer a pop quiz to newly lubricated autos; the 16-point evaluation includes an engine check to reveal leaks or abnormal noises, inspection of the battery condition and connections, a brake system inspection, and checks of the clutch, hoses, belts, and exhaust.

The Wave Auto Wash relies on an industry-standard automatic machine to do the dirty work of cleaning vehicles from every angle. An undercarriage water stream blasts the bellies of cars, removing mud and grime, and the system’s Power Blaster technology expertly eradicates bugs and dust from the car's grill. Precisely placed spouts then spray autos with a choice of a clear coat, spot-free rinse, foam brush, or Tri Gloss solution. Lastly, high-powered blowers eliminate all water droplets, including those hiding between the locks.

Vehicle owners can also take advantage of the shop's self-service stations, each of which comes outfitted with individual washing bays, blowers, and three-motor vacuums that effectively remove crumbs, dirt, and dusty skeletons wedged beneath the seats.
