Following the opening of our Upper Hutt Fuel Stop in May, we’re now gearing up for the opening of our second site in the Wellington region in a few weeks.
As the region’s only low-cost operator, our entry into Wellington brings much-needed competition and choice to the capital, where Kiwis have been paying some of New Zealand’s highest fuel prices.
The opening of the Tinakori Fuel Stop – located at 24-26 Hutt Road – is part of our rapid national expansion plan for our network. A new site in New Plymouth, at Otaka, is under construction and will open in mid-July, and our first South Island site, in Christchurch, is also under way.
Opening our sites in the Wellington region marks an important milestone for our 100 percent Kiwi-owned and operated business.
“We’ve sure stirred things up with our arrival in Upper Hutt. Motorists down here have been hurting at the pump for too long, and we’re stoked to put that right,” says Waitomo Managing Director Jimmy Ormsby. “We’re expecting to create even more disruption to Wellington fuel prices when Tinakori opens – and that’s the way we like it.”
Keep updated on our opening dates here or on Facebook.
Tinakori Fuel Stop – opening in July – 24-26 Hutt Road, offers Unleaded 91, Premium 95 and Diesel. Accepts EFTPOS, credit card and our Waitomo Fuel Card.

Waitomo Upper Hutt
Our new Upper Hutt Fuel Stop was opened on 14 May. Located at 1066 Fergusson Drive, the unmanned 24-hour Fuel Stop will offer retail and commercial customers Unleaded 91, Premium 95, and Diesel. GoClear, a diesel exhaust fluid, is also available to diesel vehicle users.
As with all new Waitomo Fuel Stops, the pumps on site are fitted with vapour recovery technology, a system not widely used in New Zealand that sucks petrol vapour that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere back into the pump.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the welcome we’ve received from the Upper Hutt community. Jimmy and the team want to say a massive thank you for all the support – it’s moving to know we’re making a difference to Kiwis with our everyday low Waitomo price.
Our Papamoa Fuel Stop, located at 72 Te Puke Highway, was blessed and opened on 11 March. This Fuel Stop offers Unleaded 91, Premium 95, Diesel and GoClear, and accepts our Waitomo Fuel Card, EFTPOS and credit cards.
Waitomo Hamilton Central
Our Hamilton Central Fuel Stop, located at 563-571 Anglesea Street, was blessed and opened on 20 February. This Fuel Stop features Unleaded 91, Premium 95 and Diesel, and accepts our Waitomo Fuel Card, EFTPOS and credit cards.
