An MFG-owned Esso garage, with Londis.

MFG (Motor Fuel Group) is currently the biggest forecourt operator in the UK.


MFG was formed on the basis that a new subsidiary company would be formed every time the founders acquired a new series of sites, making the business easier to manage. Under its own independent banner, MFG grew to over 900 sites, and they are currently working on bringing all the companies under one banner.


They formerly used Costcutter as a shop brand, but entered a deal with Booker in 2016, bringing Budgens and Londis into their network. Most Costcutter stores were re-branded by the end of 2016. However, when they bought MRH, some forecourts had Hursts in them, which is MRH's own brand.

MFG also intend to replace all of their SPAR and Hursts stores with either Londis or Budgens in upcoming months, prioritising the replacement of the SPAR stores.


In 2015, MFG acquired some forecourts from Shell including sites on A-roads; the retail parts of which were refurbished to include the standard MFG offering of Costcutter, later Londis.

In June 2018, MFG acquired MRH.

In December 2020, MFG acquired all 6 of AUK Investments Limited forecourts in the Lake District.

On 30 June 2021, MFG acquired all of George Hammond PLC's 6 forecourts in the South East of England.


MFG operate forecourts at the following signposted service areas:
