Usually petrol station.
It can also be a "filling station" or occasionally "service station", though usually the latter is reserved for the larger motorway rest stops where there are restaurants etc as well.10
Those are gas stations. I usually refer to them as whatever company they are. For instance, there's a gas station up the street from me and if I'm going, I'll say "I'm headed to A-Plus".20

Gas stations & don't go all technical on me now.10
There's 3 basic forms of matter gas, liquid and solid (yes I know that's an oversimplification). The stuff that comes out of the pump isn't a gas is it? No thats why your car doesn't float in the air. It's a liquid called petrol. Hence the name petrol station.
gas is air, but gasoline however is liquid, and we americans love to shorten long words hence why 'gas' became a thing. :P
We tried shortening petrol to pet but people kept shoving puppies in their car
If I may inject, petrol is a medieval word referring to oil. Gasoline is sprayed as fine droplets in an internal combustion engine, which then mix with the fuel and ignite, promptly evaporate to gas. You are therefore purchasing gas if you think in more sophisticated ways as we do in America.
Actually if one may correct you gasoline comes from Cazeline which was originally a trade name. Petrol is from the latin petroleum meaning rock oil.
Oh, you are so refined, aren't you?
