    Background: The first Total petrol stations in the United Kingdom will be open and selling French petrol to the British motorist in the next few days. A new station at Bushey Heath was opened Dec 1, and motorists arriving at secret pre-selected times were given Christmas hampers including French champagne.

    Mr C.G.Redman, General Manager of Total Oil Products (G.B.) said that within a year more than one hundred Total stations would be in operation in Britain.

    A feature of the new station is the new Vacmobile machine - a vacuum cleaner - for the use of customers who want to clean out the interiors of their cars after filling up.
