You might also find somebody selling petrol by the bottle. There is such a place in Phimai town opposite the entrance to wat bung (wat burapa).



The PTT petrol station in town is now closed. A sign says it is for renovation but it has been closed for a few months now and I can see no work being done.

However, its closure coincided with the opening of a new PTT petrol station just outside the town, on the road leading to  Korat. The new PTT petrol station has a 7/11 shop and a small food area.
