By 1971, the Gasolin corporate colours had built up a presence on the roads of West Germany, but this came to an end - the great post-war brand was renamed as it became subsumed into the Aral network. Up until that point, the Opel Blitz was one of the standard vehicles at the various locations. And the towing vehicle, which WIKING produced on a 1:87 scale, was considered one of the most important helpers at many stations. This is because Gasolin had reliable vehicle maintenance written large on its red-and-white flags – the comprehensive service over and above refuelling made the customers appreciate the petrol pump attendant. Gasolin was once an institution among the petrol station network of the Federal Republic of Germany. After all, by the end of the 1960s, 3,500 petrol stations were flying the red-and-white brand identity flag – a popular fuel brand with a high level of sympathy and acceptance. The company’s market strength was a result of its existing supplier concentration, which had been helped in the 1950s when 800 blue-and-yellow NITAG petrol stations were brought under the Gasolin flag. In 1971, it was the turn of the Gasolin brand. Within just a few months, all of the petrol stations had been integrated into the ARAL network. Initially having a blue-and-white brand logo stuck over the top, the Gasolin colours soon disappeared altogether.
