Gas station near airport?

This is our 5th trip in the last year to CR and have not been able to find a gas station near the airport that is easy to access before returning our rental car. We get off Autopista del Sol at the Coyol exit and go the airport a back way that drops us off at the circle behind the airport. We have been driving all the way into Aleguela to a Shell Station, but it adds almost 30 minutes to our trip. Does anyone know of one near the Hampton Inn area?

There's a Delta Station on Rt 3 between the airport & downtown Alejuela. This is about a mile west of the Hampton Inn/Holiday Inn Express, & Rt 3 is the road that runs roughly parallel to Rt 1 between Rt 1 & these hotels. But beware! Both times we used this station, the receipt showed 10,000 colones more than the pump; they were quick to give us the 10,000 colones in cash. So, check your receipt, & call them on any discrepancy.

The only times I've had issues with gas stations is when they are busy. One by the shopping mall by the airport (Feb. 2011) and one near the car rental places. Both times they acted like they made an honest mistake, neither were. Multiple other times at other gas stations I've never had a problem (either with a car or ATV).

Usually I just take buses or shuttles, but I always try to pay attention when I do rent and need gas.
