We were happy to receive several positive comments on the Filling Station puzzle we ran last Wednesday, so we're offering a new one (in a similar vein) for Free-for-all Friday. I'm actively working on others, so provided you enjoy today's challenge - and will let me know as much in the comments - we'll elevate this to a semi-regular feature in the future. Thanks, and good luck!
