Gas Stations With Vacuums

Many major-brand 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 will at least 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 — the run-time estimates below were provided to us by customer service representatives. 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 starting with the cheapest per-minute run times.
