This friendly gasoline machine has been dispensing sage advice for over ten years now.
I used to work at the nearby mall–there’s an afterschool art-education program there, and I used to teach art to kids there. Whenever I could, I’d go here for gasoline. You can find it at the corner of Woodman and Riverside Drive in Sherman Oaks (map).
It’s not the cheapest gas in town, but it’s clearly the most articulate.
