You’d be forgiven for looking past the BP gas station at the corner of St. Paul Street and Mount Royal Avenue because of its slightly-higher-than-normal gas prices, but that BP station houses one of the oldest continually operating garages in the downtown/midtown area. The St. Paul BP has been in the same family since 1972 and it shows in the quality of the care. It’s like going to your uncle’s garage. The rates for repair are reasonable and the affable mechanics give straight-up answers and get the job done quickly. Our only disappointment is that we didn’t find these guys sooner. Thanks, high BP gas prices.
