Short Answer: Several major gas station chains have vacuum cleaners available for use, including Chevron, Citgo, Kwik Trip, Phillips 66, ARCO, BP, and 7-Eleven. For most gas station vacuums, it costs about $1 to run for a few minutes. See below for more details on gas stations with vacuums, including how much it costs to use the machines.
Gas Stations With Vacuums
Many major U.S. gas stations have vacuums, but they may not be available at every location. During our research, we found that gas stations that have car washes are more likely to also have vacuums. (Note: Online gas station locators often let you filter for locations with car washes or other amenities — this can help point you in the right direction.)
All of the gas stations listed below have coin-operated vacuums, so be sure to bring quarters. The machines will run for no more than five minutes at a time, and some have even shorter run times. Additionally, prices may vary by location. While some smaller, individually owned gas stations may offer free vacuums, we were unable to find any national chains that do. Vacuums are available 24/7, so even if the gas station is closed, you should still be able to use the vacuum cleaners. We’ve ordered the list below starting with the cheapest per-minute run times.
