Shell Hungary has introduced a HUF 25,000 top-up limit at 106 gas stations with low-pressure pumps in Hungary, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The limit of 100 liters per transaction announced on 22 February will remain in force at the 12 stations located along international transit routes.
At the other stations equipped with high-pressure pumps, customers will be able to refuel their vehicles without restriction.
The impact of low fuel prices in Hungary, which are low by regional standards, has led to a record increase in demand for fuel at Shell's domestic stations in recent weeks, the company says. Sales volumes have surged compared to previous years due to international transit truck traffic, truckers and cars visiting neighboring countries to refuel, and farmers buying for spring agricultural work.
The limit was introduced to maintain the security of supply, Shell says.
