McFall Fuel People

Our People

  • McFall Fuel’s family values and beliefs are reflected by the dedicated team.

  • We set very high standards for ourselves and each other by working together (teamwork).

  • We take pride in all that we do just as any family would.

  • Our team not only contribute to the McFall Fuel customers but also to the communities within which we live. Many coach teams or are involved in charities or schools or other community activities just as McFall Fuel chooses to be.


McFall Fuel takes a great pride in looking after, supporting, and encouraging those who join the family business to grow professionally and personally. Anniversary Cards have become part of the businesses DNA with staff receiving one each year acknowledging and appreciating their dedication and commitment to the Team on the day they started, celebrating that day just like a birthday. The Annual Conference Weekend celebrates those who reach 5 years, 10 years and 15 years with a replica truck which increases in size. Twenty years is recognized with a more personal reward as is 25 years. McFall Fuel has ten staff with 20 years or more service with all but one having come out of the operational side of the business. Barry Petch, Paul Clampitt, Jeff Sullivan, Adrian Triggs, Nigel Heke, Allan McFall, and Scott Jeanes all began when the business was based in Te Awamutu. Shona Thompson and Tony Davies both worked for the Mount Maunganui based operation Direct Fuels which was a McFall family owned business and the two merged in 2015. The merge with Rural Fuel in 2017 saw Phil Hird join the McFall Fuel family business and his previous continuous work with Rural Fuel was recognized within the years of service just as the Toll Petroleum drivers have been.
