At what point, on average, after building a new gas station, do you make money on the location? As in, how long does it take to recuperate initial costs and you begin to earn money?

So the speed at which the gas is dispersed only depends on the handle/nozzle or the entire pump?

The pump we use at the airport on the ramp for work vehicles pumps out a gallon in about 6 seconds.

It's most likely the filter, if you don't change them often they really slow down the pump.
