Motorists looking for a place to top up their cars in downtown Vancouver will soon be out of luck.

Downtown Vancouver’s only gas station is now up for sale and potentially heading for redevelopment.

The Esso station at Burrard and Davie, which has been rumoured to be heading to market for a few months, is now listed as part of a Colliers International land portfolio.

Late last month, the only other place to fill up on the downtown peninsula — a Chevron station on Georgia at Bidwell — was shuttered.

If the Esso station is sold and redeveloped, Vancouver will become the first major Canadian city without a single gas station in its downtown core.

It also means that the closest pump to downtown will be in Kitsilano’s Petro-Canada station at West 2nd and Burrard.
