How many petrol stations are there in London? It's a variant on Joel-on-software's interview question, which I ask as a "random question" to interviewees in our IT company frequently, to get the candidate to think out a problem and make an eductated order of magnitude guess; I personally think about a 1000 give or take a few hundred either way... but I'm intrigued to know an exact-ish number number!

Dobber_manc, The licensing of petrol filling stations and other commercial petrol storage facilities in London is carried out by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority. Southwark Council http://www.southwark.gov.uk/BusinessCentre/Licensing/ApplyForLicence/PetrolStations.html According to London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority?s Best Value Performance Plan 2004/05 , there are 900 petrol stations in London. Excerpt from page 11: ?We also currently issue petroleum licenses for about 2,000 premises in London, over 900 of which are petrol filling stations.? http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/about_us/media/BVPP_2004-05.pdf ?As the enforcing authority for PCA in London this Authority currently issues licenses for approximately 2,000 different premises in the capital.
